STEM + Art = STEAM
Employers today demand creative and design skills in combination with technical skills, pointing to the importance of STEAM education for young people coming into the workforce. A paper published by NESTA, underlines the importance of promoting the fusion of arts, sciences and technology. Additionally, there is evidence that businesses that make use of both arts and science skills show higher levels of growth and innovation than companies that don’t.
Discovery Planet’s creative approach to the delivery of STEAM workshops, and the integration of arts activities into our offer, is well aligned with current thinking. We highly recommend a trip to London’s Science Gallery, where connections between art, science and health are dazzlingly made.
