What is STEAM Education?
STEAM Stands for science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics. While these are subjects that are often taught in a traditional setting, the focus of STEAM education is to integrate these subjects in the same way they interact in careers and everyday experiences. This video from STEAM Education gives an overview of the aspects of STEAM education and a peek into student experiences.
In addition to integrating content, STEAM education at Sullivan seeks to help students build the skills and experiences that they need to engage in learning, their communities, and careers.
21st Century Skills
We hear a lot about 21st Century Skills, but what does that mean?
STEAM education goes beyond the classroom to help students make connections between their classroom and the real world. We are working with local experts and organizations to link interviews with experts, field trips,
All of this is a lot to deliver, and project-based learning is the model that is supporting Sullivan STEAM Magnet in making all of these components a reality. Learn about the difference between a school project and project-based learning in this video from Edutopia.
Sullivan STEAM Magnet is in the process of transforming from a community school. We are thrilled that many of our staff have made the decision to stay and grow with us through this transition, and we are building our capacity to deliver well-rounded, quality programming.
