What is STEAM?
STEAM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math. Each of STEAM’s five subjects share a common approach and focus.
They require gathering and using evidence to create knowledge or solve problems.
STEAM learning happens naturally everyday as children explore, play, and try new things.
When young children have the opportunity to investigate the world around them, they learn and experiment with new STEAM skills and theories.
Research shows there is a positive relationship between early STEAM experiences and future success in school.
