STEAM is the abbreviation for Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Math. It’s an integrated approach to learning that encourages students to think more broadly about real-world problems.

This interdisciplinary approach has helped create innovations like the iPhone, the original laptop computer, and is even revolutionizing cooking in third world countries, and improving air quality as a result.

It helps students:

  • Ask questions
  • Connect the dots
  • Problem solve
  • Think creatively
  • Be innovative

Why are STEM & STEAM Important?

Not only can STEAM save the world, but it can also save our kids too by making their future bright. STEM jobs are expected to grow by 16% in the US between 2014 and 2024 compared to only 11% for other sectors*. And right now, science & engineering careers earn more than double the income of the median job in the United States.* Despite this, math performance in US students is faltering and STEM graduates are dropping out of their fields. And let’s not even get started on some of the inequities for women and minorities….

So how do we fix this? Start young. Let’s work together to get more STEAM education into elementary schools. Because without improving STEAM education in our schools, the US is going to fall behind in the global technology race. And with that goes the potential for our children’s futures.

Monthly Plan for the implementation of STEAM Education

We have divided STEAM monthly planners mainly for three different groups, “Basic, Intermediate and Advanced”. ECP will send separate planners for each group and these planners will be age appropriate.

It is recommended that the plans must be implemented on Tuesdays and Wednesdays However, if a school wishes to make its own schedule it can do it keeping in mind its own timetable.
