What is STEAM?  It is much more than what the acronym STEM becomes when  an “A” is added. 

“A” is for “ARTS” — all of the various types and levels of creative genre that identifies one’s particular talent. All students do not fit into the category of those who can deliver a great speech or paint a great picture.  However, all students should be provided the opportunity to create and present their personal expression within their chosen art form. 

Let’s encourage this change to include all forms of talents.
