Are you familiar with the STEM, or STEAM, approach to teaching? It aims to integrate Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Mathematics. It steps away from the traditional textbook-only, single-subject approach to show the relationships among these areas.
Science and math have practical applications by bringing in engineering and technology. The arts, including music, are based on the science of light and color as well as sound, and much more. This broad-based approach will reach more students with all their different ranges of strengths.
Every week we will be presenting a flavor of the festival, opportunities for you to be part of it, and a sample of recent technology we offered. In addition, we will suggest some STEM events happening in this area.
