Educational Value

STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics) education is a nationwide initiative that creates critical thinkers, increases science literacy, and enables the next generation of innovators. It builds on the STEM initiative by incorporating ART to include right-brain thinkers. The research is clear. Access to hands-on building, tinkering, and experiential learning-based curriculum increases the brain's ability to retain information, improves critical thinking and analytical skills, aids in social and emotional development, all while simultaneously building self-confidence.However, many of the tools, expertise, and time needed to utilize these types of strategies are usually unavailable in public schools, and especially so in public schools serving low-income communities. At Cathedral, we introduce STEAM concepts in a fun, interactive environment through workshops, symposiums, personal projects, and more. We target middle school and high school age youth from our local community, with an aim to include as many females and minorities as possible, thereby increasing their access to higher-paying STEAM careers and building the skills critical for their long-term success.
