STEAM is an educational discipline that aims to spark an interest and lifelong love of the arts and sciences in students from an early age. Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Math are similar fields of study in that they all involve creative processes and none uses just one method for inquiry and investigation. 


As opposed to traditional models of teaching, CIS educators use the STEAM framework to bring the disciplines together, leveraging the synergy between the modeling process and math and science content, for example, in order to blur the boundaries between modeling techniques and scientific/mathematical thinking. Through this holistic approach, CIS students are able to exercise both sides of their brain at once.


Next week, we will be celebrating our very first STEAM FEST! Friday, May 7 is the time when Kindergarten to Grade 9 students celebrate their STEAM learning outcomes and present to their peers, teachers and parents!
