S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math)
Many engineers, doctors, computer analysts, mathematicians, and other field scientists continue to retire and few are ready to take their place. It then becomes essential that we provide AEA scholars with STEAM skills to prepare them for these types of careers. The STEAM program offered at AEA ensures that science, technology, engineering, art, and math are integral parts of the curriculum. Many of the PBL programs will be STEAM based. In addition, weekly STEAM blocks are periods designated strictly for focusing on STEAM instruction. We believe that the overarching art component of STEAM is fundamental in order to have the innovation and creativity required to perform scientific inquiry. Our STEAM days and projects are continuously supported by the technology used by students and teachers in the classroom daily.
