Hello viewers! I'm excited to unveil the start of a new series through this blog titled The STEAM Ambassador series! Every month I will be spotlighting an individual that proudly represents STEAM within their professional career and personal passions. During each spotlight we will have a fun interview to talk about their role and passion projects, and their views of STEAM education for the innovators of tomorrow.
Before we release the first installment of this series, I wanted to highlight on what STEAM is and how it differs from STEM.
What is STEAM? You have probably heard of the acronym STEM before; if not, STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. It focuses on and promotes teaching students specific skills catered toward the scientific approach. Focusing on STEM initiatives allows the opportunity for certain pragmatic math and science skills to be learned as well as other key skills such as critical thinking, scientific reasoning, and technology literacy for example.
