Arcola STEAM Day is scheduled for Thursday, May 25, 2017!
STEM education is an interdisciplinary approach to learning where rigorous academic concepts are coupled with real-world lessons as students apply science, technology, engineering, and mathematics in contexts that make connections between school, community, work, and the global enterprise enabling the development of STEM literacy and with it the ability to compete in the new economy.*
At Arcola, we add the Arts to these contexts as well. STEAM Day brings professionals into Arcola to introduce our students to careers in these areas as part of our career and college readiness curriculum.
Are you interested in speaking to students about careers?
