Overview

STEAM refers to the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics. These subjects are not taught in isolation at PS 222. STEAM is the integration of these five subjects using an interdisciplinary  approach in which students can explore, discover, think, and problem solve with each other. 

Learning by doing is engaging and exciting for the students. Successful hands-on experiences, provide all students with the ability to explore technology, engineer and problem solve with confidence. Students need STEAM project-based learning to build 21st century skills.
