What is STEAM Education?
STEAM Education is a new teaching concept that integrates the Arts with the traditional STEM subjects: Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. It emphasizes practice-based learning concepts instead of theoretical knowledge. Practice-based learning encourages students to participate in projects that they are interested in and also allows them to conceptualize technology they are familiar with. Students will gain comprehensive skills such as critical thinking, problem solving, creativity, innovation, and collaboration. The skills they learn through practice-based learning will enhance and spark our future generation in STEAM education.
STEAM refers to science, technology, engineering, the arts and mathematics.
