What is STEAM Education?

What is STEAM Education?

STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math) education is a nationwide initiative that creates critical thinkers, increases science literacy, and enables the next generation of innovators. It is a synergestic approach to teaching the STEAM disciplines instead of isolating them as separate schools of thought.  It is the next logical step in what the STEM initiative began by incorporating art to bring the right-brain into traditional scientific thinking.

The innovation and science literacy required by tomorrow's job market depends on a solid knowledge base in the STEAM areas. It is clear that most jobs of the future will require a basic understanding of math and science—10-year employment projections by the U.S. Department of Labor show that of the 20 fastest growing occupations projected for 2015, 15 of them require significant mathematics or science preparation.

There are many STEAM activities you can do in your classroom and plenty of rescources available online, but none provide the immersive experience of Mobile Ed's STEAM Museum.  This hands-on museum comes to your school and allows your students to roam the different exhibits, just like if you went through all that hassle of going on a field trip...but this field trip comes to you.

Check out the ways Mobile Ed's STEAM Museum demonstrates each of the STEAM subjects in interactive and hands-on ways.

STEAM Education - Science - Mobile Ed Science
Augment your science program by exposing your students to dynamic examples of physics and material sciences - all with practical real-world examples.  The Friction Raceway showcases gravity, inertia, and of course, friction, and the Plasma Sphere introduces the 4th State of Matter.

STEAM Education - Technology - Mobile Ed

Technology
We're on the cutting edge of today's fast-moving world bringing one of the most advanced humanoid robots ever built, programmable robots, 3D printing, and even an HD video presentation on robotics.

STEAM Education - Engineering - Mobile Ed Engineering
Get your students ready for the jobs of tomorrow!  See how they take to building a parabolic arch, creating a model roller coaster, or building a gear-driven mechanism.  Get inspired by the incredible robotics on display and how everything works.

STEAM Education - Art - Mobile Ed

Art
Realize the connection between art and science through synergestic design and application.  See how design choices turn complex machines into friendly companions, how engineers and designers are often one and the same, and how data can be beautiful.

STEAM Education - Math - Mobile Ed

Mathematics
Everything ties into math, but the Pythagorean Theroem Wheel will get everybody to see the beauty in geometry and programming the various robots will showcase your logical thinking and problem solving abilities. 

Inspire your students to become the architects of tomorrow with Mobile Ed's STEAM Museum!
