STEAM is an educational approach to learning that uses Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Mathematics as access points for guiding student inquiry, dialogue and critical thinking.
STEAM is an integrated approach to learning which requires an intentional connection between standards, assessments and lesson design/implementation.
Inquiry, collaboration, and an emphasis on process-based learning are the heart of the STEAM approach.
Utilizing and leveraging the integrity of the arts themselves is essential to an authentic STEAM initiative.
