Sequoyah has embraced and integrated the Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics (STEAM) Initiative. This focus purposefully incorporates STEAM curricula into the regular classroom environment. In an effort to prepare students to excel in an ever-changing global workforce, we must intentionally design inquiry-based, exploratory, and real-world problem-based learning opportunities for our students. We believe an emphasis on science, technology, engineering, art and math will greatly influence the establishment of critical thinking, will develop a deeper understanding and appreciation of the arts, and will cultivate creativity and innovation within students.
Our STEAM room (maker space) was designed with the engineer in mind. Classes utilize the STEAM room to design and build projects. It is equipped with six 3-D printers, a wide variety of building tools such as hammers, saws, tape measures and levels, as well as an assortment of consumable products including cardboard, clay, and bubble wrap.
