The goal of our STEM and STEAM methods is to foster intellectual, entrepreneurial and technical talent and design thinking. This is vital to Ohio’s future economic growth and prosperity, which depends on an aligned education system to support the state’s economic development efforts and that helps all Hartford county students become innovators and inventors, self-reliant and logical thinkers and technologically proficient problem solvers.

STEAM Programs We Offer

Educators and employers have come to realize that STEM education is not sufficient because it only challenges the left side of the brain. The arts boost the right side of the brain which is responsible for creativity. Both sides of the brain are required to help U.S. students be innovators and leaders. Hence: STEM with arts is STEAM.
