STEM – STEAM
Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math—these are the foundational subjects in which students who show proficiency will have better opportunities to compete in tomorrow’s global marketplace.
The STEAM approach to education is designed to enhance the teaching of familiar subject areas by incorporating a stream of innovation into regular curriculum. Instead of relying on rote learning and lectures, students are asked to apply creative thinking to produce innovative solutions to problems and to make connections between what they read and their own previous knowledge or experience.
Nomad books invite kids to examine the world through the STEAM lenses of inquiry and exploration. The activities in each book shift the typical classroom environment from teacher centered to student driven.
STEAM teaches children to think critically, innovate, solve problems, collaborate, and satisfy their own curiosity while seeking answers to the ever-present question, “Why?”
