STEAM Club introduces the fun of STEAM to students through art. One intent of the program is to onboard 2nd-3rd graders to our STEM Club and, eventually, our Math is Cool program, which will do wonders for their math skills.
Sessions are 8 weeks long. This pilot program is currently being hosted at Borah Elementary and expanding to more schools soon. Has your school requested our new STEAM program yet?
This program currently serves 2nd and 3rd graders and is overseen by a teacher coordinator with the help of high school students. We look for student coaches who have a helpful spirit and a desire to teach others, as well as those who love art and other aspects of STEAM. Each program serves 20 students.
Did you know art is now a part of STEM subjects? Well it is! STEM has now become STEAM! Art inspires creativity and imagination. It has the power to open minds to the vast fields of learning that a student may not initially be drawn to. Exploring through art provides students with new and imaginative opportunities for communication and expression. Many concepts in art are based in science, engineering and design. Think about persepctives and angles. Creative communication brings science subjects to the masses, right? The creative processes behind art can be used to drive innovation and find inventive solutions to problems. Art can also serve as a pathway to STEM for traditionally underrepresented students. Participants benefit by increasing their knowledge and problem-solving skills, cementing their interest in STEAM, and building relationships with older student coach role models.
Our program moves rapidly through activities to keep student attention. Art projects are used to easily teach and learn math concepts and problem solving skills.
