STEAM is an educational approach to learning that articulates Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics as access points for guiding student's inquiry, dialogue, and critical thinking. The approach  aims to strengthen the foundation of STEM to promote the students' in enhancing their critical thinking skills and recognize the integration of Arts, Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. Integrating arts activities can decidedly enliven the curriculum content, make learning outcomes more successful and interesting to both teachers and students, and introduce powerful, inspired, creative and logical thinking into the teaching-learning process.

STEAM education provides opportunities for the students

  • to think outside the box,

  • to express innovative and creative ideas,

  • to feel comfortable in hands-on learning,

  • to take ownership of their learning,

  • to work collaboratively with others &

  • to understand the ways that Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics work together.  

As new technologies emerge, STEAM education and Coding is becoming an aspect of Indian education. STEAM and Coding prepares students for 21st century.
