STEAM is an educational initiative that adds the Arts to the original STEM framework.
STEAM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics.
According to the Rhode Island School of Design, who created the STEAM educational initiative, the aim of STEAM is to foster true innovation by merging the mind of a scientist or technologist with that of an artist or designer.
At SSPS, we value the addition of the arts to the original STEM framework and that’s why it forms the foundation of our curriculum.
Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics all involve creative processes and doesn’t use just one method for investigation.
By engaging our students with the STEAM subjects, we aim to spark an interest and life long love of the arts and sciences in them.
