STEAM is an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics. This is an important educational philosophy supporting content that is presented in an interwoven, layered and sophisticated manner rather than offering subject learning in isolation. The goal of STEAM is to prepare an agile and competitive workforce and is vital for success in the 21st century.

"Our Children no longer learn how to read the great book of Nature from their own direct experience, or how to interact creatively with the seasonal transformations of the planet. They seldom learn where their water come from or where it goes. We no longer coordinate our human celebration with the great liturgy of the heavens."

- Wendell Berry
