STEAM at the Greenwood
STEAM learning and teaching provides students with authentic opportunities to explore, critically engage with, and work to change the world. STEAM represents the integration of science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics. In a STEAM classroom, students move beyond learning these subjects in isolation, but rather employ them as tools to learn and solve problems facing themselves and their communities.
By the time Greenwood students have graduated, they will have developed an aptitude for scientific inquiry and design thinking (the tools of STEAM). Through inquiry, they will have cultivated a base of scientific knowledge and 21st-century collaboration skills, so they may be effective and scientifically-literate global citizens. They will have carried out meaningful STEAM projects; in which they will have explored, proposed, and designed solutions to help better the world and work towards social justice.
