Science, Technology, Religion, Engineering, Arts, & Math, meet here in the STREAM of God’s Love
What is STREAM?
STREAM is a cross curricular program being piloted by St. Rose of Lima Catholic School.
Is STREAM anything like STEM?
STREAM is an expansion of STEM. It is an acronym for Science, Technology, Religion, Engineering, the Arts and Math. As Catholic schools, our mission is to educate the whole child; therefore, we have taken the principals of STEM infused religion across all subjects and added the arts to provide students the creative thinking skills necessary to communicate and advance STEM in the real world.
STREAM is also a visual description of flowing water. In the classroom STREAM is the flow of ideas over and across several subject areas. Equally important is the fact that the success of the STREAM program at any school will require a constant flow of communication, collaboration and planning among students, teachers and parents.
STREAM is not a new curriculum, but a framework for creative instruction. STREAM uses technology to advance the experience. Not only will students use traditional text, but will also use Apple TV, iPads and laptops to access the internet to explore, process and learn.
Students from Catholic schools consistently outperform their peers in public schools* and STREAM raises the bar to keep our competitive edge. Across the US, business leaders are having difficulty finding enough talent to stay competitive. Our children need to be able to inquire, think, investigate and innovate to succeed. STREAM prepares our students for successful careers in a 21st century workforce.
