STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Math)

STEAM education in FCPS is an inquiry approach to teaching and learning where students integrate science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics to solve real-world problems, develop Portrait of a Graduate attributes, prepare for future careers, and engage as global citizens.

The complex nature of today’s society require students to develop a new set of skills and knowledge to be competitive in the rapidly-changing world. The STEAM Project Team collaborates with local business & community partners to provide project-based, relevant, and rigorous learning opportunities that promote life-long learning and problem-solving skills. Our goal, aligned to FCPS’ Strategic Plan, Ignite, is to deepen content understanding and foster Portrait of a Graduate attributes through integration of STEAM, while providing exposure to and opportunities for STEM careers.
