What is STEAM?
STEAM is an educational approach to learning that uses Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics, and the Arts as access points for guiding student inquiry, dialogue, and critical thinking. The end results are students who take thoughtful risks, engage in experiential learning, persist in problem-solving, embrace collaboration, and work through the creative process.
How will this look different than the previous GT curriculum for my student?
- Instead of tri-folds, students will develop presentations and videos on their learning journey for GT showcase.
- Students will meet regularly to work on engineering challenges, coding, robotics, video creation, electronic construction and other age appropriate STEAM based activities.
- Learning focus will not be on the “product” but on the process of problem solving and creative thinking.
