What is STEAM?
In recent years, Arts has been added to the STEM acronym (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math), making the term now known as STEAM.
The integration of Arts in STEM subjects allows for students to:
gain a better understanding of the arts and standard curriculum, leading to a more holistic educational experience.
become innovative leaders who can find more creative ways to solve today's global issues.
incorporate design thinking, 21st century competencies, and real-world applications of learning in a fun environment to help them approach issues with a critical mind and a positive attitude towards problem solving.
By combining STEM and the Arts, we can prepare the next generation of leaders and problem solvers to make a positive impact on the world.
What is Arts Integration?
Arts Integration in STEM is an educational approach that incorporates the arts (visual arts, media arts, music, dance, drama) into the teaching and learning of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) subjects. It aims to enhance and enrich the traditional STEM curriculum by infusing artistic elements and creative processes. This interdisciplinary approach encourages students to explore STEM concepts through artistic expression, fostering a deeper understanding of both the STEM subjects and the arts and both are taught and assessed equitably.
