In Focus in 2019: STEAM

STEAM in 2019
STEAM

Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics (STEAM) disciplines have become the focus of nationwide educational, political and financial focuses, with funding grants, specialist pilot programs and academic research illustrating the importance of these areas in fostering children’s innovative and creative abilities.

Now, more than ever, we are seeing the emergence of pioneering industries requiring more critical thinking, more creativity and more multidimensional learning. These industries are full of the problem solvers, the dreamers and the big thinkers addressing some of the world’s most complex problems, and making us as efficient and effect as possible in our daily lives.

 

The foundations for these industries are built in the Early Years, through the concepts of STEAM, and have been embedded into daily practice for many years. The difference now, and to us, is how we can stimulate and motivate you to confidently plan for, and observe, STEAM at work.

In 2019, Educational Experience will provide you with STEAM inspiration through our dedicated Engage. Inspire. Extend website feature, showcasing expert articles and specialist resource recommendations from new and existing ranges, all to prepare you, your classroom and your children for these economies of the future.
