Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Math

In Everbrook Academy’s early education programs, STEAM integrates the arts and sciences throughout classroom areas and daily routines. It connects academic skills to practical application so learning becomes meaningful to children’s everyday lives. Through STEAM experiences, children develop essential 21st century skills (the 4 Cs) of creativity, collaboration, critical thinking, and communication.

Why STEAM?

STEAM learning stimulates innovation, creativity, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills, resulting in a well-rounded, multi-faceted child. It encourages children to think about what they're learning in a more connected, holistic way. Through STEAM, children develop the skills and attributes to navigate the world around them.

What is STEAM?

Simply put, STEAM means Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Mathematics.

This educational approach integrates the arts and sciences throughout classroom areas, as well as in lessons and daily routines. It connects academic skills to practical application so learning becomes meaningful to children’s everyday lives and encourages children to think about what they’re learning in a more connected, holistic way.

STEAM: Science

Nurturing inquisitive minds and inspiring curiosity. Experiments and experiences with the natural world, with living and non-living things, enable children to develop important scientific process skills, such as observing, questioning, comparing, and predicting.

STEAM: Technology

Learning to work with tools (both digital and otherwise). As 21st century learners, children will need to develop the technological skills necessary to navigate an ever-changing world. Age-appropriate smart devices and apps will be available to enhance daily learning.

STEAM: Engineering

Promoting problem-solving skills. By designing, building, and testing their own constructions and creations (including, in some cases, robots), children become makers, as well as thinkers.

STEAM: The Arts

Helping children to express ideas and communicate. Creative experiences in language arts, visual arts, dramatic arts, and musical arts foster positive forms of collaboration and communication, as children develop self-expression skills. 

STEAM: Mathematics

Guiding children to apply logic and understanding to systems. Tangible, engaging math experiences supported by a variety of resources (including natural materials) help children develop in mathematical process areas such as problem-solving, measuring, and reasoning.

How Does STEAM Work?

We all know the classic story of The Three Little Pigs. With STEAM, this familiar tale can truly come to life through a variety of learning experiences and discussions.
