What is STREAM?
STREAM is an expansion of STEM. It is an acronym for Science, Technology, Religion, Engineering, the Arts and Math. As Catholic schools, our mission is to educate the whole child; therefore, we have taken the principals of STEM infused religion across all subjects and added the arts to provide students the creative thinking skills necessary to communicate and advance STEM in the real world.
STREAM is also a visual description of flowing water. In the classroom STREAM is the flow of ideas over and across several subject areas. Equally important is the fact that the success of the STREAM program at any school will require a constant flow of communication, collaboration and planning among parish, school, administration, staff, parents and students.
STREAM is not a new curriculum, but a framework for creative instruction by using technology to advance the experience. Not only will students use traditional text, but will also use white boards, iPads and laptops to access the internet to explore, process and learn.
