Arts in Education: STEAM (Science | Technology | Engineering | Arts | Math)


Arts in Education: STEAM (Science | Technology | Engineering | Arts | Math) involves the creation of projects which demonstrate the integration of arts and science, arts and technology, arts and engineering, and/or arts and math.

Art teachers connect with their colleagues in the science, technology, engineering and/or math departments to plan the project and then work with the students to create and implement the project.

The projects are meant to create cross collaboration among departments to incorporate the arts to enhance the students’ grasp of their existing coursework in subjects like and related to science, technology, engineering and math as well as factor in the effective use of creativity.
