What is STEAM City Kids?
In a nutshell, we are a team of highly passionate educators who strive to make this world better by inspiring our most precious resource – KIDS!
STEAM City Kids is a NEW FREE STEAM based online monthly magazine and educational resource for students and teachers. Students write nonfiction pieces, create projects and design artwork that align with environmentally focused themes. We publish submissions on this website. Then, a few student journalists are featured in our spring magazine. The magazine also includes a few adult written articles to provide higher order thinking and give young readers a glimpse of careers in STEAM fields. STEAMCityKids.org is an online resource teachers may use in the classroom to leverage the excitement of STEM to promote research, writing, reading, current events and environmental conservation in the classroom.
What is STEAM?
STEAM stands for Science, Technology, Art and Math. Many schools adapt STEM programs, work on STEM-based projects and are promoting careers STEM fields. Then, some savvy creative brain added the “A” to the acronym to blend artwork with STEM. We LOVE this concept of STEAM. For us, the “A” also stands for Language ARTS.
Who runs the website & magazine?
We are STEAM educators (visit www.STEAMCityKids.com to learn more about us) who love inspiring students with live animals, hands-on experiments and engaging technology. For over 12 years, we have worked with teachers throughout South Florida. We have seen, first hand, the powerful effect STEM topics and programs have on students. We are now leveraging that enthusiasm to help teachers motivate their students to be pumped for English Language Arts while keeping up with current events and promoting environmental conservation.
