For years industry has warned of the shortfall of well-prepared, technologically ready students to become 21st century leaders but the cry is still heard and the need is ever-greater. STEAM education—Science-Technology-Engineering-Art-Mathematics-- is crucial for success in almost every industry moving forward, from service industry to executive and professional level positions.
At the Whole Child Academy, we have been nurturing relationships with major STEAM and tech organizations and will continue to build on them so our students have access to the highest level of content and application to real-world issues. Brookhaven National Laboratory, Cold Spring Harbor DNA Center, Cooper Union University and California Life Sciences Institute are just a few of the developing collaborations. Our cutting-edge STEAM program is founded on the Next Generation Science Standards that fully integrates learning to real-world applications.
