Testimonial: “We found Georgette’s training to be very delightful and helpful. We were excited to be the first Saudi school to train with STEAM Education.

We are very proud of our students doing non-traditional projects for girls and boys to bring our students forward with 21st century skills and concepts.” Mohammad Abbas, Academic Director – Al Kifah Private Schools

Program Certification – STEAM Program Objectives
We offer a transition support Program Certification to implement the paradigm shift to become a STEAM school as a supplement to a STEAM certified staff. The first year of a school’s transition is key to building the foundation and some schools prefer more support during that time. See our suggested process for a first year transition outlined by role HERE.

Testimonial: “Today, 3rd grade hosted a ‘cultural fair’ for Pre-K students as the culmination of their STEAM unit (What Defines Culture?). Third grade spent the past month investigating language, food, clothing, architecture, etc., to determine how cultures differ across the globe. They Skyped with people in Europe, raised money for a charity in Africa. They built iconic world structures. On and on. Today, for Pre-K, they printed and stamped passports, served food, gave computer tours, performed as mimes, gave Henna tattoos, played music, wrote hieroglyphics.

I say this because I think it is the best STEAM project we’ve ever done. It hit multiple math, reading, science standards and had infusions of art, geography, multiculturalism AND included 7 Habits (charity work, fair done for Pre-K). This is what we envisioned a few years ago. You might not be here physically, but this is really from your desire to be innovative and teach in a better way.” Brian Rose, STEAM Coordinator at University Place Elementary School
