STEAM Education at Ernest Hemingway STEAM School
STEAM is a philosophy of teaching and learning
Science is a way of finding evidence to support answers to questions
Technology is any tool used to solve a problem
Engineering is a means of designing and testing solutions to problems
Art is the application of human creativity and imagination
Math is the computational language of measurement, pattern, formation and relationships
Hemingway Elementary School has transformed itself into Ernest Hemingway STEAM School with an integrated, inquiry-based curriculum PK-Grade 8. Much has been accomplished to bring STEAM into curriculum and instructional practices.
STEAM is an integrated approach to learning in which science, technology, engineering, art and math are infused into all lessons across the curriculum. Throughout the school year, teachers at Hemingway develop new and exciting projects for the students. Students in grade PreK-Grade 5 are engaged in monthly STEAM Exploration days, and Cross-Grade level weekly 'STEAM buddy' collaboration time. In the Middle School grades, Art and Engineering is a core class and our elective offerings have a STEAM focus.
The focus throughout the school is to teach through the lens of STEAM with an emphasis on the 21st century skills of Critical Thinking, Creativity, Collaboration and Communication.
