The Mission of the STEAM Bus is...
"To facilitate hands on project/problem-based learning for elementary teachers and students through the use of new ideas and technologies, while utilizing problem solving skills, creativity and imagination."
STEAM is an educational approach to learning that uses Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics as access points for guiding student inquiry, dialogue, and critical thinking. The end results are students who take thoughtful risks, engage in experiential learning, persist in problem-solving, embrace collaboration, and work through the creative process. These are the innovators, educators, leaders, and learners of the 21st century.
