S.T.R.E.A.M

STEM / STEAM ,

The main difference between STEM  and STEAM is STEM explicitly  focuses on scientific concepts.
STEAM investigates the same  concepts but does this through  inquiry and problem-based learning methods used in the creative  process.

WHY STREAM?

  • Includes high focus on reading
  • Engaging
  • Addresses multiple-disciplines
  • Culminating Field Trips

WHY READING?

  • Dyslexia affects 20% of the population and represents  80–90% percent of all those with learning disabilities. It  is the most common of all neuro-cognitive disorders.
  • iReady scores showed that 77% of students at a local  BCPS are reading at an elementary level (K-5)
  • Only 21% of students in Baltimore City score at or above proficient levels
