Why STEAM Matters
STEAM PREPARES FUTURE READY LEARNERS
STEAM education helps students not only excel in their traditional studies, but also develop skills and understanding of technology, media literacy, and critical thinking.
In addition to basic subject-area knowledge, STEAM fosters a combination of competencies that students must develop in order to be set up for long term success, including core values, social emotional skills, and 21st Century Skills.

TINKRWORKS & APS PARTNERSHIP
STEAM Education Impact
TRANSFORMING LEARNERS TO INNOVATORS
The City of Aurora, TinkRworks, and APS Training Academy created a partnership in 2021 to provide hands-on STEAM programming for underserved 1st-8th grade children within the City.
The program, known as the Aurora STEAM Academy, had an overall goal to spark an interest in children to explore STEAM opportunities in the future and also instill within them the confidence to pursue STEAM related opportunities they might not otherwise choose to do.
