STEAM

What is STEAM?

  • STEAM stands for science, technology, engineering, art, and math.

  • STEAM activities involve a multidisciplinary and inquiry-based approach to those disciplines. 

  • STEAM provides a framework for real world application of concepts.

Why is STEAM a part of our curriculum?

  • STEAM activities encourage critical thinking, problem-solving, creativity, curiosity and collaboration. 

  • Children are introduced to scientific and mathematical concepts in a hands-on, child-led approach that leads to a deeper level of understanding.

  • Confidence and perseverance increases as children try different ideas and learn from failures. 

Examples of STEAM in our classrooms:

  • Children are challenged to build a structure out of play dough and toothpicks that can support a clementine.

  • Children create a robot that can draw using a hexbug. 

  • Children experiment with ramps. Which one will make the car go the fastest?

  • Children are challenged to create a structure that will protect an egg from breaking when dropped. They test their creations on the playground and then refine their designs.
