The STEAM approach to learning takes the Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics (STEM) fundamentals and injects Art into the equation. Georgette Yakman invented Science & Technology interpreted through Engineering & the Arts, all based in Mathematical elements.
“A STEAM team is more like a business team,” Yakman said in an interview. “We have trained them as individuals. If we put them in teams where they have to work with each other’s strengths and weaknesses, they come out into the world, and they have the experience of working together.”
I love the idea, and I'm excited to see how it plays out and improves over the years.
