What is STEAM?

In STEAM education, students combine Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics to learn, explore, and solve problems in new ways.

3 Reasons Why STEAM is Good for ALL Students

1. STEAM engages students in interactive, hands-on learning.

Students learn by experiencing and doing. They problem-solve in teams and build on their interests with a teacher as a guide.  

2. STEAM connects learning across subjects through problem-solving, exploration, and design.

Students uncover new possibilities when they connect ideas from STEAM subjects. 

3. STEAM prepares students for success beyond the classroom.

Students develop deep content knowledge and the skills employers seek in our rapidly changing world.

Where is STEAM?

At Crestwood our teachers are creating lessons which integrate STEAM with the regular curriculum.  Teachers and students have access to a STEAM lab that houses everything needed for hands on learning.  Additionally, Crestwood has an after school Robotics Team and also hosts a STEAM/Science night each year.
