STEAM fields are the areas of science, technology, engineering, the arts, and mathematics.[1] STEAM is designed to integrate STEM subjects with arts subjects into various relevant education disciplines.[2] These programs aim to teach students innovation, to think critically, and use engineering or technology in imaginative designs or creative approaches to real-world problems while building on students' mathematics and science base. STEAM programs add arts to STEM curriculum by drawing on reasoning and design principles, and encouraging creative solutions.[3][4][5]
