What is STEAM?

STEAM education is an interdisciplinary approach to learning that removes the traditional barriers separating the five disciplines of science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics, integrating them into real-world, rigorous and relevant learning experiences for students.


STEAM means the integration of Science: The study of the natural world Technology: Any product made by humans to meet a want or need Engineering: The design process used to solve problems Art: Playful, inventive, artistic and innovative thinking and creating Math: The language of numbers, shapes and quantities


STEAM education focuses on real-world issues and challenges, guided by the engineering design process. There are five critical steps in the STEAM design process – REsearch, Design, Build, Test and Improve.

Science

The study of the natural and social world.

Technology

Any product made by humans to meet a want or need.

Engineering

The design process used to solve problems.

Arts

Playful, inventive, artistic and innovative thinking and creating.

Mathematics

The language of numbers, shapes and quantities.
