The STEAM Approach

[Science Technology Engineering Mathematics] + ARTS = STEAM

STEAM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics. It is a derivative from its earlier version, STEM, but extending the educational journey through hands-on arts education. The STEAM approach is designed to ignite a child’s imagination with experiential learning in a fun-filled environment.
