Why is STEAM Important?

There’s no way around it: our children are significantly better off with strong science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics skills. That’s why S.T.E.M. and S.T.E.A.M. education programs are so important.

STEAM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math.

It is STEM + the inclusion of the Arts.

STEAM helps foster your child's creative thinking, problem solving and innovative thinking. By including the Arts into STEM, it gives your child permission to think outside of the box. STEAM encourages unique solutions, inventive thinking and problem solving.

Did you know that by the time your child enters the workforce, 65 % of the jobs that will be available don't even exist today. You can prepare your children for a world that doesn't exist yet by exposing them to STEAM projects. Also encourage your child's natural curiosity and talents through STEAM activities that help your child learn,

  • how to persevere

  • how to learn from failure and still try again

  • how to re-evaluate, redesign and re-think a problem to create a unique and inventive solution.

A few example of STEAM activities for kids,

  • Investigate force & motion with balls.

  • Push & Pull painting to create a unique abstract work of art.

  • Using a broom to paint action on a canvas.
