WHAT IS STEAM?

STEAM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math. Each of STEAM's five subjects share a common approach and focus. The subjects require gathering and using evidence to create knowledge or solve problems. STEAM learning happens naturally everyday as children explore, play, and try new things.

The DorothyJeanius STEAM approach to leadership fosters creativity and divergent thinking alongside fundamental disciplines. It motivates and inspires young people to generate new technologies and ideas. With a focus on practice and innovation, students get to learn from inquiry-based assignments.

The goal of the DorothyJeanius STEAM Leadership Institute is to create pathways for more underrepresented groups to enter and succeed in STEAM related fields through exposure and opportunities to lead. Diversity in STEAM industries brings together different perspectives, creates a better experience and generates better results. Science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics is a broad educational program that spills over into many industries and technologies, affecting everyday life.
