What is STEAM?
According to Susan Riley, CEO and Founder of EduationCloset, “STEAM is an educational approach to learning that uses science, technology, engineering, the arts and mathematics to guide 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/teamwork, and work through the creative process. These are the innovators, educators, leaders, and learners of the 21st century!”
Technology Camp (grades 5-8) and Full STEAM Ahead (grades 2-4) are one-week full-day programs overflowing with hands-on, unusual, innovative and creative academic activities that explore technology, science, mathematics, engineering, art and imagination. Today’s world needs more innovators! Did you know that jobs in technology are rising while interest in technology-related careers are dwindling among the next generation? Ignite and nurture your child’s interest in STEAM with this hands-on, innovative summer program!
Please see the summer catalog for more details (pricing, dates, times, locations, course descriptions) and the forms to register. The summer catalog is posted by mid-March each year.
