“Kids are natural inquirers”, STEAM methods provide them a space where they can dive deeper into what they’re learning in the specific disciplines.
iSTEAM is to inspire inquiry and curiosity; to empower students to ask thought-provoking questions that promote creativity and exploration, and to connect their problem-solving to real-world solutions.
