STEAM - Science Technology Engineering Art Math
LCA utilizes an innovative educational approach that focuses on science, technology, engineering, art and math. The foundations for this program are curiosity, critical thinking, and process-based learning. Students take calculated risks, participate in experience-based learning, become aggressive problem solvers, work well with others, and effectively navigate the creative process. STEAM empowers students to become the innovators, educators, leaders, and pupils of the 21st century.
STEAM is an integrated approach to learning which requires an intentional connection among standards, assessments, and lesson design/implementation. True STEAM experiences involve two or more standards from Science, Technology, Engineering, Math, and the Arts to be taught AND assessed in and through each other. Utilizing and leveraging the integrity of the arts themselves is essential to an authentic STEAM initiative.
