STEAM Program Goals for Students


I’ve been thinking a lot about programs lately (new occupational hazard I guess). After edCamp last weekend, STEAM has been front of mind. I tend to think of programs from the perspective of what do we want to see students doing. For a 1:1 program, it basically comes down to accessing information, collaborating, creating and presenting using modern tools. For a STEAM program, maybe it would look something like this:

  • Problem Solving
  • Explaining
  • Problem Finding
  • Designing
  • Creating
  • Building
  • Presenting
  • And having fun

What do you think a STEAM program should look like for kids?
