iSTEAM utilizes resources of Indiana University’s School of Education and Jacobs School of Music to offer STEAM programming to a cohort of middle school teachers from rural schools throughout Southwest Central Indiana. The iSTEAM project infuses art into science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) curricula by bringing together art and STEM teachers to explore connections with the goal of designing and implementing engaging, inquiry-based activities for students. The program utilizes engineering design, science, mathematics, art, and music to engage students in creative and innovative pursuits that serve to build robust understandings of core disciplinary concepts and advance student technological and artistic knowledge and skills. Career awareness of disciplines that foster creativity and innovation is highlighted throughout the project such that participating teachers can share STEAM career options with their students.
