STEAM = STEM + ARTS
STEAM is not about adding to the acronym, but instead adding to the relevancy of learning. STEAM is about showing students how technical concepts relate to real-world situations and providing them with hands-on projects and problems that help them apply concepts in a new context. STEAM is about nurturing students’ curiosity and helping them develop creativity, problem solving and critical thinking skills. STEM (SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY, ENGINEERING, MATHEMATICS) is not simply the subjects in the acronym. STEAM is an engaging and exciting way of teaching and learning.
