What is STEAM and why is it important to TEL HI?
STEAM is an educational approach that promotes the combination of science, technology, engineering, arts and math as a way of encouraging comprehensive learning. STEAM encourages an individual to use techniques from different fields to solve a problem by using a different approach. Examples include using technology to solve a math problem or incorporating the principles of art to influence science.
Our STEAM programs inspire students to be curious, take risks, and engage in creative problem solving methods, shaping skills for the next generation of leaders and innovators. The number of STEAM jobs is increasing rapidly and we are actively creating programs and activities for kids and teens to embrace everything that STEAM has to offer.
We are so passionate about STEAM that we have commissioned a mural installation on the entire back of our gym wall facing Chestnut Street. The mural includes information, fun facts and colorful illustrations to better explain each of the five disciplines. It’s never too late to learn and we invite you to visit and experience our STEAM installation in person. There are lots of opportunities for selfies and social media and if you have already visited our mural, don’t forget to share and use #STEAMatTELHI
