Putting the A in STEAM
Is it STEM or STEAM? The answer is both. The evolution from STEM to STEAM recognizes the importance of arts and humanities in education.
Art helps bridge the gap by promoting creative thinking and design in scientific studies.
A study from the Americans For The Arts Foundation shows that high school students with an integrated art and music education scored an average of 92 points higher on their SAT scores.
Another study showed that participating in music classes dramatically raised the math proficiency of first-graders.
In short, students benefit from a well-rounded education that features both STEM and arts. Through STEAM education, the five disciplines of science, technology, engineering, arts, and math work together to help young women reach their full potential.
