During this time of social distancing, please engage with us to see how we can enhance your virtual, classroom, or home school learning.  We know that there is more to STEM than just robots, computers, and space exploration.

For more info, please email our Education Department.



STEM + the Arts

We are not making this up.  STEAM is a real thing.  The arts have been added to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math).  STEM focuses on scientific concepts while STEAM investigates those same concepts through inquiry and problem-based learning methods used in the creative process.  Wildlife have inspired music, drawing, and literature since the dawn of humans.  Explorers would bring back drawings of the flora and fauna of the places they visited. Educational text books and websites are filled with images and graphics used to describe to the learner about our natural world.  STEAM is the way to understand our world.
