STEAM is an educational approach that integrates science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics through project-based, interdisciplinary learning. Drawing on design principles and art practices, STEAM adds to the strengths of STEM learning through increased opportunities for critical inquiry, collaborative exploration, creative design, adaptable problem solving, and real-world application. This fully online course serves as an introduction to STEAM learning and will equip teachers and students to leverage the arts for enhanced problem-solving, student engagement, and content learning. All of the readings and activities included in this course support the Common Core Mathematics Content and Practice Standards, Next Generation Science Standards, Common Core Standards for English Language Arts, ISTE Standards, and National Core Arts Standards.
