Over the past five years, STEM education has undergone many iterations. Beginning with enhancements to the acronym itself; we have gone from STEM to STEAM to STREAM, and just to confuse matters even more, we started adding “Makerspace” to the equation.
STEM is much more than the subjects represented by the letters, it is an integrated approach that uses project-based learning to enable students to understand the relevancy of their learning to the world around them.
So how do we make this happen? How does a school or district implement a STEM program that aligns across the curriculum?

Fabulous day, thank you so much, hope you are having more in the future!
This was an exciting workshop and information received today will be a useful tool for driving instructions in my classroom.
Thank you so much for being engaging presenters! I was nervous about an all day virtual conference but was really impressed with the structure, flow and enthusiasm! It was great to be able to work through some things with small groups and have feedback throughout!
I really appreciate this summit. It reaffirmed what I'm doing and let me know I'm going in the right direction. The new things I learn can be added to what I'm currently doing in the classroom.
Well organized and full of relevant information. Working on creating a rich and rigorous middle school program. Today's events supported my plans and gave me confidence we are moving in the right direction. Thank you.
I enjoyed all sessions but the session on Coding in Early Education the most helpful with our needs for our district.
Loved the keynote point about the education being like an egg carton/silos. Love the activity of Content/Knowledge and Disruptions. Deliberate Design provided a hands on activity that I can bring into my classroom once I obtain the kits.
This was a fabulous session. I learned to incorporate many things in the classroom that I never considered adding to my classroom before. I especially loved the student sharing in STEM for the classroom, specifically implementing the book creation tools app, and adobe spark. These applications really help students engage in their learning and have fun. The most important thing is to make learning as engaging as possible for children of all ages.
Absolutely a MUST for all schools who have a STEM/STEAM program
This was a great day. The facility was fantastic and the food was incredible. The presenters were very knowledgable and I love that it was all shared with us.
