STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math)

STEAM is a curriculum based on the idea of educating students in five specific disciplines — science, technology, engineering art and mathematics — in an interdisciplinary and applied approach. Rather than teach the five disciplines as separate and discrete subjects, STEAM integrates them into a cohesive learning paradigm based on real-world applications.  All students at ACES in grades K-8 are exposed to STEAM through hands-on projects throughout the year.  Middle School students are also offered to choose a STEAM elective course that is a full-year course focusing on the STEAM disciplines.

ACES Tune in to S.T.E.M.

Necessity became the mother of invention for a recent Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (S.T.E.M.) challenge at ACES. True to the S.T.E.M. philosophy, the assignment was designed to inspire students to learn how things work.
