The STEAM Bus is under New Management!
What does this mean to you?
Nothing! The STEAM Bus will operate as it always has. You schedule the bus, we bring it to your school. What has changed is the person who you schedule with is no longer Rebecca Fritz :-( Charles Koenig will be your primary source of contact. His email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Who is "WE"?
The Columbia STEM Alliance has taken on the operation of the STEAM Bus. The CPS STEM Alliance is a collaborative network of educators, business partners and affiliates that inspires interest in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math careers.
What happened to Craig?
He retired from CPS! However, he's now working as the Executive Director of the Columbia STEM Alliance.
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.
