Our children are simply not getting the opportunities they need to learn how to invent, develop, and innovate. They do not have enough opportunities to engage in the processes of STEAM fields in meaningful ways at an early age. Every job, even the ones you wouldn’t expect, will require at least basic STEAM skills. Research shows that these skills are transferable and needed in every job sector. STEAM education provides the underpinnings for every child to be successful in college, work, and life. At The STEAM Academy, our students are problem solvers, innovators, inventors, and logical thinkers. Technology is advancing so quickly our children need to be ready for jobs that don't even exist yet. The opportunities of the future belong to the innovators, the entrepreneurs, and those in the fields of STEAM.
