STEAM stands for: Science | Technology | Engineering | Art & Design | Mathematics
The STEAM Team at Waubesa incorporates three state-of-the-art learning environments designed to empower self-directed learners with the tools, resources and freedom necessary to foster the development of their creativity, critical thinking, problem-solving, and teamwork skills. Students work on a series of rigorous hands-on engagements. They will be required to read and research a variety of instructional materials in order to accomplish their learning objectives. Each student is responsible for keeping a record of what they are learning, what they accomplish, the challenges they encounter, and how they solve them. Students will quickly learn how to use a variety of tools to aid them in demonstrating and documenting their learning experiences.
These sessions are taught by Mrs. Evans, Mrs. Hauser and Mr. Northouse.
