In our ever-changing world, many of the jobs that will be available to today's grade-schoolers have not yet been invented. But one thing is certain - the jobs of tomorrow will require creativity and innovation. As author Daniel H. Pink describes, "The future belongs to a different kind of person with a different kind of mind: designers, inventors, teachers, storytellers: creative and empathic right-brain' thinkers whose abilities mark the fault line between who gets ahead and who doesn't." So how will your school build and support a STEAM initiative that is truly student driven? Join Naomi Harm as she shares 10 creative strategies that you can use to bring STEAM to your school, while meeting the needs of today's diverse learners. She will address the following focus areas: setting your STEAM goals, funding, bringing the outside in, building a growth mindset, designing learning spaces, building STEAM projects around real community problems, celebrating STEAM inventors, connecting with mentors, and staying true to the disruptive and innovative nature of the STEAM movement.
