STEAM education is more than just a sum of its parts. While science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics are important subjects individually, a holistic approach provides kids with opportunities to learn more. Studies show that STEAM education encourages curiosity, innovative thinking, collaboration, and teamwork, and teaches kids to learn through failure instead of being stopped by it.

In addition to teaching critical soft skills, STEAM learning prepares kids to join a competitive workforce. STEM employment has grown 79% since 1990, and workers in STEM fields make, on average, about ⅔ more than those in non-STEM fields. Kids who are exposed to STEM and STEAM education are more likely to pursue STEM careers as adults.

How does it work?

Our STEAM Box Program works a lot like a library. Each month, we deliver boxes to schools, libraries, afterschool programs, and other youth-serving organizations. Each box contains a different type of technology, an activity guide, and all the materials needed for the activities. Facilitators at our partner organizations use the resources in the box to lead their students through STEAM activities, and at the end of the month, we pick up the box and drop off a new one.

Our boxes contain everything your class, camp, club, or event planners need to get started:
