STEAMING It Up! inspires participants to integrate science, technology, engineering, the arts and mathematics (STEAM) throughout the school. If you are looking for a school engineering challenge, a family science festival, online games, inter-disciplinary lessons aligned to standards, artistic endeavors or STEAM activities that improve literacy skills – you’ve come to the right place! NIU STEAM programming is offered within a conceptual framework that is robust, comprehensive and research based. There are six catalytic components of this framework- problem based learning, growth and persistence, 21st Century skills, career exploration, core content expertise, and transdisciplinary thinking. Each catalyst has been identified in research and our practice as essential to successful development of a STEAM culture. Our commitment is to work with you to change your school, your classrooms and even your students’ lives with a STEM/STEAM school.
Facilitated by Dr. Kristin Brynteson, Northern Illinois University
