STEM/STEAM Education

What is STEM?

STEM = Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math.  It's a specific program designed to integrate and apply knowledge of math and science in order to create technologies and solutions for real-world problems, using an engineering design approach.

What is STEAM?

STEA
= Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Math. It’s the same integrated approach as STEM with arts education. The growing popularity of STEAM acknowledges the importance of creativity, innovation and imagination in developing and implementing STEM-based projects.

STEM and STEAM learners approach all subjects with creative thinking, curiosity, and a focus on real world problem-solving, often as part of a group. 

What is Problem Based Learning (PBL)?

PBL is a student-centered, inquiry-based instructional model in which learners engage with an authentic problem that requires further research. Students identify gaps in their knowledge, conduct research, and apply their learning to develop solutions and present their findings.

Some schools have STEM or STEAM programming school-wide or as part of curriculum offerings. Learn more in the links below:
