Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics (STEAM) education has been growing rapidly in the last decade. You’ve probably heard of the acronym STEM. STEM was introduced in 2001 as a way to refer to careers and/or curriculum centered around Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) -- the most rapidly growing industries in the Global economy. Then as many companies continued to ramp up technological innovation, in order to remain competitive across the globe, the movement around integrating STEM into educational frameworks began to gain a lot of traction.
