Preparing Tomorrow’s Workforce Today
HOME | STEAM PROGRAM
programmatic initiative of the Institute of the Americas which brings 12 years of STEAM education experience to deliver high quality experiential learning to students and, training their teachers in project-based learning (PBL) and multidisciplinary teaching pedagogy; proven strategies to better engage students in STEAM subjects.
Our programming has grown from a two week residential Science & Innovation Camp for students to include Professional Teacher Training Workshops, STEAM Labs (day camps) and STEAM Enrichment Programs conducted afterschool and on weekends. In addition, we bring students together with Latinx STEAM professionals who serve as role models, teachers together to exchange new PBL lessons, and parents to improve their digital literacy and guide their children to take advantage of higher education opportunities.
