STEAM+ education is an approach to learning that removes the traditional barriers separating disciplines and integrates them into real-world, rigorous, relevant learning experiences for students. STEAM+ teaching doesn’t incorporate all disciplines in every lesson, and it’s not always problem- or project-based. But all STEAM+ learning has one thing in common, it provides students the opportunity to apply the skills and knowledge they have learned or are in the process of learning.
