Every day is STEM Day to us!

What is STEAM?
#STEAM stands for science, technology, engineering, art and math. It is a form of learning that mimics the real -world best, by incorporating multiple disciplines just as they overlap in the our everyday activities.
STEAM uses both sides of the brain supporting an #experiential format of #learning that allows children to explore, discover, absorb and become critical thinkers.

Happy National #STEM day!
