The STEAM Camps Are Coming
The STEAM camps represent a totally new approach to the curriculum, and forge a new beginning in reinventing K-12 education.
It’s early in the new year but educators across the country are already making plans for the summer and they are thinking STEAM… with the arts playing a critical role.
As demand for a new workforce to meet the challenges of a global knowledge economy is rapidly increasing, few things could be as important in this period of our nation’s history than an interdisciplinary education that brings the arts and sciences together. Not surprisingly, so-called STEAM Camps signal an increased role for the arts as part of the new curriculum.
Most analysts studying the new global economy agree that the growing "creative and innovative" economy represents America’s salvation.
