TheLi.st | STEAM: A Manifesto
Over the last few years, the increasing visibility of high-tech startups has spurred an interest in early childhood fluency in the STEM disciplines: Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. I fully support initiatives like the Hour of Code and the integration of tools like Codecademy into curriculum as Chicago Public Schools recently has done.
But STEM education isn’t enough. We need STEAM: Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics.
