What is STEAM?

STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math) is a mix of interrelated subjects that are taught together in an integrated way. Integrating these subjects, especially adding a creative component with art, is beneficial for students and makes sense for the way kids learn. STEAM lessons are usually hands-on and exploratory and the education prepares students for the real world, where professionals often use multiple disciplines to complete their work.

*Meet Mrs. Noonan*

Jardine Elementary is a STEAM Signature School. Mrs. Noonan is the STEAM Consulting Teacher for the district, serves as a STEAM Coach and is Jardine Elementary's STEAM Teacher. The Jardine scholars attend STEAM once a week during their specials rotations. Students get to spend time exploring STEAM through hands-on, creative projects that will give the scholars the skills they need to be successful in the future. These projects also encourage communication, collaboration and problem solving which are all skills they will need to be successful in the 21st century. Through the use of robots, a 3D printer, a makerspace, lego walls, Osmos and other engaging learning tools, Mrs. Noonan is able to engage all students into STEAM.
