STEAM Education

STEAM Education is a powerful educational movement aiming to transform the way we think about instruction today.

Engaging more diverse learners, STEAM Education complements STEM Education by emphasizing the arts to explore personal expression and meaning-making within discipline integration and problem-solving. STEAM instruction provides a place whereby learners can take a deeper dive into integrated content and problem-solve across and beyond disciplinary boundaries. STEAM Education prepares learners that are innovators, designers and creative problem solvers to help navigate complex global issues.



The STEAM Education cognate-only program is comprised of 12 hours of coursework (four courses) that equips educators with best practices in transdisciplinary and authentic applications of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics.
