What is STEAM?

STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) + Art = STEAM

Why?

“Artists and scientists both ask big questions; designers and engineers both provide inspired solutions. Together they are more powerful than apart.” stemtosteam.org

Enhancing education by applying“methodologies and principles unique to art and design thinking, such as experimentation with material, iterative problem solving, and storytelling to STEM-related content” STEAMwith.us
