STEAM (and STEM) is an educational approach to learning that uses Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics as access points for guiding student inquiry, dialogue, and critical thinking.
STEAM learning is very important because it promotes problem-solving, creative and analytical thinking. Many of the jobs that effect our economy include STEAM subjects. Accounting, architecture, medical research, and environmental studies all involve science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics. According to the U.S. Department of Commerce, STEM occupations have grown in the last ten years, three times faster than non-STEM occupations.
For this reason, among others, it is never too early to begin introducing STEAM learning to your child.
