STEAM is more than an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math, it’s a philosophy of education that embraces teaching skills and subjects in a way that resembles real life.
Instead of teaching disciplines in independent subject silos, lessons are well rounded, project and inquiry-based, with a focus on interdisciplinary learning. STEM and STEAM align with the way we work and problem-solve in our daily lives, with math and the arts being integrated into everything we do.
MSKSI STEAM Mentors help students further make sense of how they use these skills in the work they do, and how students can use the same concepts in everyday life.
Given our complex and changing world, we will need citizens who are critical thinkers and problem-solvers to meet our modern challenges.
