Vision behind STEAM Co-Op of the Upstate
STEAM Co-op the Upstate is a cooperative among Christian homeschool families in the Upstate where CHRIST is the center in all subjects/courses of studies. This cooperative will provide opportunities for the normal learners and special needs/learning differently children to thrive in varied learning opportunities that are not already readily available in our Upstate area.
Teachers and parents that register with STEAM Co-Op of the Upstate will be required to sign a statement of Christian faith.
WHAT IS STEAM?
Science. Technology. Engineering. Art. Mathematics.
“STEAM is an educational approach to learning that uses Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics as access points for guiding student inquiry, dialogue and critical thinking. The end results are students who take thoughtful risks, engage in experiential learning persist in problem-solving, embrace collaboration and work through the creative process. These are the innovators, educators, leaders and learners of the 21st century!” -Susan Riley, Arts Integration Specialists
