STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) is an educational framework that brings reality into classroom by connecting different subjects together in a way that they will relate to both the real and the business world and to each other as well. STEAM is the second step of STEM education, in which one incorporates the artistic and design-related skills and thinking processes to student-learning process. As such, STEAM education is gender inclusive and accessible for all levels of technical abilities. STEAM education provides an opportunity to formally teach in a fun environment showing the relationships between subjects and real-life, therefore increasing the sense of motivation, self-efficacy and problem solving skills. It aims to promote the learners’ motivation for learning and to educate people in order to help them become capable of solving multidisciplinary problems.
In addition, STEAM education is to play an important role when proposing solutions to overcome the well-researched and identified gender issues pronounced in many Western societies related to involve, motivate and retain girls and women in the fields of science, technology and math, including socio-cultural expectations, lack of female role models, relevancy of curricula, pedagogy and so forth. Furthermore, the inclusion of arts into the hard sciences curricula intends to foster creativity and economic growth.
