Steam education is the acronym for science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics. “The STEAM education approach, in particular, challenges students to find solutions to open-ended problems and learn concepts in a multidisciplinary way based on relatable real world scenarios. Children are exposed to important new concepts and ideas like robotics, coding, AI, collaborative design, and mixed media, among others.”
Educators and parents employ different tools to spark interest in learning. Museum trips, visits to the zoo, farms, and aquariums are just some of many ways to augment education.
