About STEAM (Stem + Art)
The demands of the 21st century require us to think differently about core academic subjects. STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) is an innovative way to enhance traditional Science programming. Our STEAM classes will address traditional science and math content through innovative lab opportunities, and—through our partnership with an international nonprofit—participate in a class that combines design thinking and one-to-one collaboration to solve real-world problems between students in the U.S. and global partner students in 20+ countries.
