STEAM is an educational program based on an interdisciplinary and applied approach, when the above-mentioned 5 directions are combined in one general educational system.
STEAM develops critical thinking and problem-solving skills accompanied by real-world application projects in the classroom.
Thanks to the STEAM curriculum, the traditional classroom becomes an innovative and research environment where students find themselves in a world of scientific adventures and real science experiments.
The STEAM curriculum aims to stimulate students’ curiosity and imagination, and to enhance the knowledge they need to become future scientists and engineers.
Today, the program is considered one of the leaders around the world, and it is no coincidence that in many developed countries of the world, the program is used not only in universities, but also in schools and preschools.
STEAM is an educational model that combines mathematics, technology (computer skills and knowledge), science and engineering (engineering) subjects and various arts into one common system.
At the core of STEAM is the interactive approach, when biology, physics, chemistry and mathematics are taught not as independent subjects, but are logically interconnected and complement each other.
Getting STEAM education, students start working on projects from an early age. with them, they learn to do teamwork, alternative thinking is formed.
The STEAM educational model has a history of about 30 years and today it is considered one of the leaders in the world.
ArtSTEM school is the only one in Armenia, which fully implements the international STEAM educational program, and upon completion, gives the graduates an international STEAM certificate.
Nowadays life is developing quite fast and the professions that were in demand years ago are now out of "fashion" and new ones are coming to replace them. And many of the new professions require STEAM skills.
The demand for specialists with STEAM education is increasing day by day both in Armenia and in the world.
STEAM education develops the child's engineering and construction skills, develops is the design taste, reveals such hidden skills that would otherwise be hard to find.
Science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and the arts all involve creative processes.
Teaching relevant in-demand skills that will prepare young people to become innovators in a dynamically developing world is important not only for the future of individuals but also of the country.
It is no coincidence that many education experts consider STEAM education to be a key component of 21st century education.

As a result of this holistic approach, the 2 hemispheres of the students’ brains work equally at the same time.
STEAM is useful for high school students to succeed in higher education as more and more careers require STEAM skills.
One of the important approaches of the STEAM program is that students not only learn the subject, but also learn how to learn, how to ask questions, how to experiment, how to create.
