Steam at Hillcrest

STEAM is an education buzzword that stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math. In recent years, as more and more companies make strides in technological innovation, it has become vital that these subjects are incorporated into the classroom and our children’s education.

Our kindergarten through sixth grade students have a STEAM elective built into their schedules weekly, giving them an opportunity to learn about technology in a way that is geared toward their age and experience. Our Makerspace offers middle and high school students a physical space to practice the hands on approach to problem solving, and an introduction to technology they would use in a professional setting.

In addition to our Makerspace, we offer a robotics course, and a dual enrollment engineering course, where students can also earn college credit. We are excited for the educational opportunities these courses bring to the school and to see how our school’s STEAM program will continue to grow in the years to come.
