The A in STEAM
The Arts have been integrated into Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM). It can feel challenging for educators to fit all subjects into the curriculum! However STEAM is less about adding another subject and more about incorporating the ‘A’ with an integrated curriculum. Join the STEAM revolution with Makedo!
When students use Makedo for constructing e.g. characters with moving parts, arcade games to play and cubbies or houses to hide ... often there is a hidden STEAM process behind the fun construction process. Think broadly about the ‘A’ … including design, creative thinking, problem solving, communication, curiosity and collaboration. Not to mention liberal arts, fine arts, music, and language arts. It’s all connected and CRITICAL FOR INNOVATION.
Why is this important in education? Because 21st century students need to integrate knowledge and skills to face challenges and problems. What is the perfect resource for creating these learning opportunities for your students? MAKEDO! It’s the ultimate cardboard construction teaching and learning tool for design related skills and thinking processes. See our Edu Guide to discover how Makedo enables hands-on learning that fosters all of the above to meet STEAM curriculum outcomes.
Next time you're planning a project with Makedo, talk to your colleagues of ALL subjects and see how you can collaborate to create an exciting, interdisciplinary experience!
