• Sixth grade TEIs are called “Technicians,” and they will search for answers to “What is STEAM?” Students proficient in this course will understand science, technology, engineering, the arts, and mathematics (STEAM) as a collection of interrelated disciplines, rather than a series of isolated fields. Students will come away from this course with a thorough understanding of how the STEAM disciplines work together to investigate the world, define problems, and create optimal solutions to benefit society. In this course, TEIs will explore the history of engineering and technology, they will be introduced to the practices of science and engineering, and they will explore various greenSTEAM fields to empower them to make an informed decision when selecting a career pathway in high school.
