Why did we create a STEAM Academy?

  • Jobs in STEM fields are growing exponentially. The US is not keeping pace with the number of graduates needed to fill STEM related jobs.
  • We feel Arts belongs with STEM because creativity fuels innovation and expression.
  • We hope to open students’ eyes to possible careers in STEAM fields and to foster a love of applied investigation, imagination and problem solving.
