Look Around, Be Curious.
STEAM activities don’t happen just at school. Look around your community for clubs or organizations you can join which embrace STEAM, whether the topic is horticulture, astronomy, geology, art, or whatever fascinates you.
Visit An Aquarium, Museum or Zoo!
A great way to learn about STEAM topics is to visit local museums, aquariums and zoos. These types of organizations are often science or art-based and will have plenty of educational programs you can enjoy.
What's Cutting Edge?
The great thing about STEAM disciplines is they are always evolving. What kind of new technology can you start exploring? Maybe you could learn how to engineer a flying drone or an underwater vehicle?
Find A Mentor!
A great way to learn about STEAM is to find a mentor. This could be a parent, a teacher or a community professional who’s willing to spend time to teach you about their science career.
Check Out Colleges and Universities!
Local universities and community colleges often offer STEAM-related activities and classes for middle and high schoolers. Check their websites for additional information which could help you.
How About A School Club?
Math can be an exciting and very useful activity. Check to see if you have a math (or any STEAM-related) club at your school to help extend your skills and knowledge.
Creativity Also Counts!
The “a” in STEAM stands for “art and design.” These visual skills can not only play an obvious role in certain science disciplines like engineering, but can be used effectively to communicate science concepts to others.
The Search For Amelia Earhart
When Amelia Earhart vanished in 1937, most people thought she was lost at sea. But new archaeological evidence may suggest that she lived out her last days as a castaway on a remote tropical island.
