Why STEAM at Envision?
Our goal is to stimulate the whole mind in order to educate the whole child, as stated in our slogan. Integration of the Arts with STEM enhances student engagement and learning and unlocks creativity and innovation. STEAM education helps to develop well-rounded students who can reflect logically and culturally, enhancing their competitive advantage in an ever-changing global economy. Envision Science Academy delivers this STEAM-based education through smaller class settings, project-based learning, and differentiated instruction where students are encouraged to work to their fullest potential. The rigorous instructional program has an interdisciplinary structure in which technology is integrated and common themes are studied across multiple subjects.
”After a certain high level of technical skill is achieved, science and art tend to coalesce in esthetics, plasticity and form. The greatest scientists are artists as well.” – Albert Einstein
