What’s "STEAM?" It’s an acronym for "science, technology, engineering, arts, and math."
Clegg Elementary School has gone full STEAM ahead in 2013 with science, technology, engineering, art, and math. For American children to grow up to innovate in STEAM fields, they need not only academic proficiency, but a healthy dose of creativity and ingenuity as well.
Although students have always been exposed to a well rounded curriculum at Clegg Elementary School, this year teachers are bringing it to a new level. Students will focus on various STEAM projects throughout the year that will span the curriculum. Projects will be presented each trimester at "Lunch on the Lawn" events.
With global competition rising, America is at an imperative crossroad in defining its economic future. It is our belief that art and design are poised to transform our economy in the 21st century in the same way that science and technology did in the last century, and the STEAM movement is an opportunity for students to remain in the forefront as innovators of today’s world.
