If you are new to the term STEAM it stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math.  STEAM covers cross-disciplinary learning.  These programs have gotten a huge push in the US due to lack of interest in these fields. The idea of STEAM is to teach children that subjects don’t have to be in isolation. That in learning you can bridge subjects together.  These sites can help introduce your child to the world of STEAM.
