What is STEAM?

What is STEAM? STEAM is an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics. It is a way of approaching learning that incorporates all or some of these aspects in a project-based classroom environment that encourages students to work on real-life challenges and situations. We are excited to bring new, creative, innovative and inspirational learning opportunities to our students in DCRSD.
