STEAM-azing: The Interdisciplinary Lens for Instruction
Explore the connection between science, technology, engineering, art and math. STEAM develops a set of thinking, reasoning, teamwork, investigative, and creative skills that students can use in all areas of their lives. Participants will learn about STEAM initiatives, investigate interdisciplinary connections, evaluate resources and create lessons.
The STEAM course will break down the walls among art, hard sciences and math marrying the connection between science, technology, engineering and math. Participants will receive "STEAM Kids: 50+ Science / Technology / Engineering / Art / Math Hands-On Projects for Kids" and "Worlds of Making" books. This will allow these subjects to partner with one another, encouraging holistic learning. STEAM develops a set of thinking, reasoning, teamwork, investigative, and creative skills that students can use in all areas of their lives. STEAM education also helps to bridge the ethnic and gender gaps sometimes found in math and science fields. Participants in the course will discuss STEAM initiatives, investigate interdisciplinary connections, evaluate resources and create lessons appropriate to their instructional needs.
*Participants in this course will have mandatory, synchronous, video conference sessions. The dates and times are listed on each course registration page.

I liked the overall layout of the course. The pacing was appropriate and I learned very pertinent information that I feel could help me implement right away.J.S., Special Education Teacher
I will be using a lot of activities I have learned through this course. It was a great way to learn how to incorporate Steam projects across the curriculum.E.B., Elementary Teacher
I learned a lot during this course. I took it with several colleagues and we are working on creating a STEAM/Makerspace area for our school. I had never even heard of the term Makerspace before. I loved being able to create projects that I can really use in my classroom. It wasn't just busy work. I was even able to put some of those new ideas into practice when I designed my school wide science night for families. I can only see it expanding in the future.K.B., Language Arts Teacher
