What is STEAM, exactly?


“STEAM is a way to teach how all things relate to each other, in school and in life. It’s more fun than traditional learning styles and makes more sense to all types of learners because it is based on the natural ways that people learn and are interested in things.

STEAM teaching allows educators to customize the learning experience and the amount and style of delivering content so that students can each learn similar content within one classroom in a variety of ways, so that whatever ways work best for them, they can benefit from. Therefore students of all types, such as those marked as having talents or learning difficulties, can each take things to the level of complexity that they can and be appropriately pushed a little beyond what is easy for them.When they find something difficult, there are natural ways to break it down and look at it differently until students can understand parts of it and start from there. There are a lot of amazing people who have had educational plans and philosophies and great movements in education; STEAM is not something entirely new, STEAM is a way to organize and incorporate the best practices and ideas and customize it for each learning experience and person involved.” – via


Walton Academy believes in the benefits of STEAM and we know your child will certainly blossom as a result of it. We are one of the first private schools in the state to offer this platform, proudly so. We teach students to learn, adapt, be creative, be inquisitive and learn new concepts applicable to their daily lives. We also teach manners, social skills and positive character traits.


“Children need to be engaged in learning, and learn in ways that can hold their attention, the way social media, and internet sites like Youtube do, The easiest way to do this is to make it fun and interesting. The inclusion of arts does this, for a wider range of children. Something like video art tied into code makes learning look more fun, where the student is solving a problem to create a project they love. Art education allows students to learn things in a more open ended way and make them applicable to real life. Arts and creativity are crucial to the sciences, technology and computer science.They are the tool that allows technology to be usable in real life! Arts are used in website and user interfaces design, advertising, product design and usability, branding and start-up creation among countless other uses, all things that are crucial to STEM learning and careers.

So STEAM education is crucial to educate and prepare the next generation of the American, and global workforce, and to allow this generation to create jobs and grow the economy.” via Vincode
