Via project based learning, Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Mathematics are integrated to offer a more holistic learning experience. STEAM challenges students through the application of 21st Century Skills: creativity, innovation, critical thinking, problem solving, communication and collaboration.
A great example of what STEAM learning can look like in New Hampshire is the integrated project that occurred at the K. A. Brett School in Tamworth. The school collaborated with the Chocorua Lake Conservancy in Chocorua, the Tin Mountain Conservation Center in Albany, and artist Juno Lamb. The process of sharing their learning through art deepened the students' thinking about the science they studied and strengthened their observational skills. The classes collaborated on creating a crankie – you can see it in action and learn more about their great STEAM learning experience here - "Life at Chocorua Lake" crankie.
