About

Crossborder STEAM Program

Enabling expanded human capital and workforce development is critical. One way that the Institute is promoting workforce development in the Americas is through its STEAM initiative that is helping to expand opportunities for young people to benefit from experiential learning opportunities in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics

Our Goal

By exposing middle school students to various activities highlighting an array of STEAM disciplines, students can experience these fields the right way, via hands-on, interactive content that is meaningful to their daily lives and via exposure to real-life STEAM professionals.

Testimonials

 

“[I would recommend the] STEAM [lab because it is] a program like no other. In these four days… I was inspired to continue my studies and make important decisions in my life, even though I am only in middle school. [The] STEAM [Lab] taught me that it is never too early to make decisions about what you are passionate about or what you want to study.”

“What I enjoyed the most was exploring and experiencing areas of mathematics, robotics, electronics, and criminology that maybe I didn’t know I liked or was interested in, and of course learning differently than school and the traditional educational system.”

Why is it important to
support this initiative?

Opportunity to make a difference in a student’s life. STEAM is the gateway to understand and explore our world.

By exposing students to STEAM subjects and experiences, we provide them with opportunities to fulfill their potential, develop a passion, and secure a future job so that they can solve problems and contribute to society.

We are preparing the next generation of leaders, scientists, and researchers – problem solvers and collaborators.

We provide proven tools and techniques for teachers to more successfully engage their students in critical subjects and encourage their natural curiosity and relate STEAM subjects to the real world.
