What is Steam Education and Why is it Important
STEAM is the acronym for the first 5 letters of the five subjects
(Science, Technology Engineering, Arts and Mathematics)
They are (science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics). Thus, the STEAM system is an educational system that aims to integrate these five educational subjects into the basic curricula and to blend and interconnect them.
The importance of implementing this system
STEM Education prepares students’ minds to deal with contemporary science and art. As well as the readiness and qualification to join future jobs that require scientific expertise in those fields that are indispensable today in many fields and include all areas concerned with engineering, technology, science, arts and mathematics
The fields of work and functions offered by the STEAM system to its students
Since the STEAM study system focuses most of its attention on the four scientific fields, including science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and with it the arts, it helps our male and female students to develop their skills and knowledge in those sciences and knowledge areas.
Which helps them to be optimally prepared to join jobs in those fields in the future. It includes engineering, technological and scientific jobs: such as medical jobs with all its specializations, engineering with all its specializations, jobs related to science, space and astronomy, and jobs related to technology, electronics and computer programming.
STEM Methodology Objectives:
In addition to teaching science and mathematics subjects, the STEM methodology aims to train learners to be more productive in all their endeavors by enhancing the following concepts and skills:
Dialogue and questions
Develop critical thinking skills
Learning by doing and interactive application
Learn about the relationships between the four disciplines
Problem solving and research skills
Collaborative work and communication skills
Connecting learning with working life
