The SouthTech Preparatory STEAM Program is a curriculum based on the idea of educating students in four specific disciplines — science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics — in an interdisciplinary and applied approach. Rather than teach the four disciplines as separate subjects, STEAM integrates them into a learning program based on real-world applications. The SouthTech Preparatory program also focuses on identifying and learning about STEAM related occupations. Students will have many opportunities to try new things and create something fantastic!
The following are components of the STEAM curriculum at SouthTech Preparatory:
