What is STREAM?

STEM + Religion + the Arts = STREAM

STREAM is the necessary evolution of STEM Education •

Science +Technology + Religion + Engineering + the Arts + Mathematics = STREAM

STEM Education emphasizes the progression of interdisciplinary studies in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math; STREAM EDUCATION also incorporates the creativity and expression of the Arts and our faith as integral components of a 21st century Catholic education.

  • Lessons, units, and community education programs are based on the eight STREAM principles which promote a higher level of critical thinking and a deeper understanding of content materials

  • STREAM activities are hands-on; projects based, include engineering design, and have relevant application in the real world

  • It inspires teachers to include and develop 21st century instructional strategies at every grade level

  • STREAM takes learning outside the traditional classroom experience through customized field trips and dynamic, interactive outreach programming in collaboration with our professional community partners

STREAM is not a new curriculum, but rather a framework for impactful instruction and meaningful learning.
