A great resource from the Sun Sentinel in Southern Florida, STEAM is an interactive PDF with 5 activity guides that integrate art into the STEM program. STEM, which stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math, includes an Art activity with each unit to give students a creative outlet for what they’re learning.

Activities include learning about the math and engineering behind airplanes or the science and technology of food production, with the added component of designing an airline brochure or new packaging for a food ingredient.

Adding art and a chance for students to be creative enhances and accelerates the STEM learning experience. You can find the PDF guide for STEAM here.
