Why STEM ---> STEAM?

The District is adding the arts to STEM. STEAM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math. Why STEAM? Simply put, nearly all innovation in STEM couldn't happen without a healthy dose of the arts. Take Michelangelo, a Renaissance artist who created enduring pieces of sculpture, frescoes and paintings viewed by millions. But Michelangelo was also a scientist, engineer and mathematician who put his skills to work as an inventor. The arts are a foundation of STEAM. They help us envision future innovation, unlock creativity and enable new ways of thinking.

Back In-Person for 2022

The STEAM Expo is one of the District's most popular learning events of the year, bringing students, teachers, parents and district partners together to engage with STEAM activities, displays, experiments and more.

How it will work

We are asking students, community partners and staff to sign up now to have an interactive table during the event. We need your STEAM minds to develop fun and engaging models, exhibits and presentations that open up pathways to great thinking engaged in science, technology, engineering, art and math. Sign up now!

We are asking our parents, caregivers and other guests to join us on Nov. 15th from 6-7:30 at Brittany Woods Middle School.

STEAM at U. City Schools

Mission: provide authentic STEAM experiences that are relevant, meaningful and accessible for all students.

Vision: Every student at every grade will have at least one relevant, meaningful STEM experience.

Growth: Since implementation of a STEM program in 2012, the District now provides a wide array of STEAM inspired experiences and coursework starting in preschool and continuing through graduation. Increasingly, all students have equitable access to STEAM activities, courses and real-world experiences. STEAM in University City reflects the meaningful integration of content, complex thinking, application and problem solving so our students are prepared for both future careers and future coursework upon graduation.
