STEAM: Innovations That Solve Real World Problems


Explore STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) and the foundational pillars of this project-based learning approach: Create. Present. Respond. Connect. In this edWebinar, Cheri Sterman, Director of Education for Crayola; Lucie Howell, Director of Learning and Engagement for The Henry Ford; and James Wells, Innovative Teaching & Learning Manager for Crayola, will:

  •  Draw upon objects and stories of innovation from the Henry Ford collection to discover how the museum approach to education can be brought into the classroom
  • Discuss using Crayola authentic assessment rubrics to help students do self and peer assessment for teachers to learn via STEAM projects
  • Explore the intersection of social change and technical innovations through the history of technology, looking at how problems were solved yesterday—with the same growth mindset that helps solve the problems of today and tomorrow
  • Examine what makes STEAM projects rigorous, standards-based, and highly relevant
  • Consider why STEAM is an approach, not a curriculum

K-3, elementary, and middle school educators are invited to attend this edWebinar. There will be time to get your questions answered after the presentation. Join us to learn about STEAM innovations that solve real world problems, and reflect on what makes STEAM education so effective.
