STEAM activities employ skills from various educational disciplines (Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Math) to propel kids toward inquiry and solution-based knowledge. By combining tessellation explorations with a STEAM approach to learning, kids are challenged to use interdisciplinary and critical thinking skills to investigate how all learning is connected to their world.
