This is a great story regarding the importance of STEAM education (from a recent issue of PC World):
Previously referred to as STEM education, STEAM education stands for 'Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics', a term used to describe a method of educational focus on these subjects in schools, colleges and other learning institutions.
This is a term that is becoming more and more popular to the ears of teachers and students alike and, right now in the educational sectors, it seems to be all anyone is talking about. The term is used by educational facilities to empower teachers, allowing them to give their students project-based assignments that cover all of these subjects.
Why Use STEAM?
Science and Technology have, over the last 50 years, become a major part of society and our individual lives. It has single-handedly changed the way we live and has opened up new possibilities for our future as a race that previously deemed impossible. Accompanying these subjects, other subjects such as Engineering and Maths have also become majorly important for private companies who are developing roles to complete certain jobs, some of which do not even exist yet.
