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.
