STEM (STEAM) and Object Based Learning: K–6

STEM (STEAM) and Object Based Learning is ushering in a Renaissance of sorts.  Imagine a class full of Leonardo Da Vinci like thinkers.  Art, historically, was essential to some of the greatest scientists, inventors, mathematicians, and innovators.  The early years are critical to the development of a critical and creative mind.  How can the Arts expand what you are already doing in the classroom?  Why must education cultivate a students creativity? This session will focus on integration of visual arts across the curriculum with an emphasis on STEM related topics.  Integrating Art into Science and Math should not be a clash of the Titans, more of a love story.
