We are thrilled to announce that NPR’s Mindshift has written a wonderful article about our Summer Camps and how we incorporate STEAM into our story! Never before has an article done such a detailed and thorough job of explaining our mission (Inspire life long learners who want to make a difference in the world), our purpose (To create a safe, fun, and educational environment where our Heroes and Guardians can grow and learn), and our vision (To be the preeminent source and curator of interactive story-based education).
But you may be asking, What is “STEAM”? You’ve heard of STEM, but what does the “A” stand for?
STEAM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math. STEAM isn’t quite as well known as STEM, but as a company that encourages creativity and cultural education, we consider the Arts to be an important part of becoming a lifelong learner. At camp, our Heroes experience an Arts education as they sing the songs of far-away cultures, craft armor, create the image of their character, and read ancient poetry. Ultimately, as we are all Story-based educators, there is Art in everything we do. So join the STEAM team… and help us put the Arts in learning!
