STEAM is an educational approach to learning that uses Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics as gateways to  guiding student inquiry and critical thinking. The goal of a STEAM approach is to develop learners who are eager to take thoughtful risks, engage in experiential learning, persist in problem-solving, embrace collaboration, and design creative solutions. This workshop will explore activities that embed engineering and technology into the Math, Science, and Art classrooms. Participants will engage with several hands-on examples of challenges and will explore a number of resources to help them design their own curricular materials.
