What is STEM → STEAM Education?
STEAM adds the Arts to Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics centered education. By adding the A, we are educating the whole child by encouraging creativity, expression, and a whole brain approach to learning.
ShareOn May 7th, 2015, panelists from the worlds of education, the arts, policy, business, tech and media came together to share best practices, personal stories, scientific study, tools and ideas on STEAM education. The panel brought widespread awareness to STEAM and the fact that every child can learn and succeed through the Arts across all subject areas.

“We frequently discuss the importance of STEM education, but we can’t ignore the importance of engaging and educating both halves of the brain. Creative, critical thinking leads to innovation.
The integration of the arts into STEM curriculum will excite creativity in the minds of our future leaders and innovators.”
