Learning how to problem solve is a key aspect to life, regardless of career choice. STEAM is an interdisciplinary approach to problem solving that involves critical thinking and teamwork. Arts, such as artwork, models, and written word, are important in showcasing and articulating the problem and solution. What About STEAM will provide a fun, introductory experience to this interdisciplinary learning, while giving the children exposure to laboratory exercises, robotics, computer analysis, and more.
This is a new STEAM program designed for students in the Washington Area. Our team consists of individuals who want to share their talents and interests in learning with our younger generations. We hope it is a fun and enlightening experience for all involved!
