Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) represent some of the fastest growing—and highest-paid—job sectors. But to prepare students for the changing workforce, young people need to learn more than technical skills. They need to develop the creativity, ingenuity and empathy that comes from the study of music, theater, language and fine arts. Today, educators recognize that a well-rounded curriculum that includes Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Math (STEAM) is the best way to prepare students for success in the modern economy.
The arts help to spark creativity within STEM disciplines and are a great way for people to combine their love of arts with a background in the sciences.
