Full STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Mathematics) Ahead

The C-STEM program integrates art into STEM education. It gives students the opportunity to explore their artistic and creative talents using music and visual media. The C-STEM program offers curriculum and activities for creating movies, programming hardware robots to play melodies, and a range of drawing functions students can explore in our integrated development environment and RoboBlockly. The C-STEM program further develops student’s artistic creativity through the annual RoboPlay Video Competition in which students compete with students across the country to design the best video in a number of different categories.

The C-STEM program includes the following art related components.
