STEM vs. STEAM: Why to Add Arts? by Lucia Stevens

Do you know the main difference between STEM and STEAM educational programs? research shows that at first glance, everything is pretty simple: STEM stands for science, technology, engineering, and math. Adding an “A” for Arts makes it STEAM. The main difference we see between STEM and STEAM is that first one explicitly focuses on scientific disciplines while last one investigates the same, but does it via inquiry and problem-based learning methods the creative process is based upon. To make this more clear for you, our team generated a small chart that explains on high level how both programs work and what students can get choosing one of them.
