STEAM Days

STEAM Days

 What are STEAM Days?

STEAM Days engage students around the subjects of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math, through activities that encourage inquiry, critical thinking and creative expression.


STEAM Days add the arts to the original STEM framework to better prepare students for higher education and to be successful innovators in a 21st-century workforce by encouraging:

  • Ingenuity and creativity in exploring new ways of thinking about solutions that combine knowledge, passion and experience for a more robust application of STEAM;
  • Experimentation through risk-taking to push the boundaries of what is possible and doable with STEAM learning with activities that reinforce concepts learned in class to real-world scenarios;
  • Teamwork and inclusivity so that all students of varying levels and ability can contribute and participate in work together
  • Tech and art-based learning for students to embrace new technologies that connect to everyday life through the arts ( i.e. communication, design and marketing).
