STEM vs STEAM: What do YOU choose?

stemvssteampincopy  

Many of us have heard of STEM school programs. STEM school programs cover career opportunities that are in high demand including the science, technology, engineering, and math fields.  With technology becoming so vital in our workforce today, these elements of education must be taught to give our children the chance to achieve success. 

However, some parents and teachers are calling for STEAM programs vs. STEM programs. STEAM includes the arts as an essential tool that students have the right to utilize. Some people vote STEAM and other vote STEM in their schools. Some claim art isn’t nearly as important as the core components of STEM, and others say that art is as valuable for our children as the other subjects.

STEM programs have more emphasis on the basics. It focuses on understanding how all the components play a role with one another, and how knowing enough about each subject can give you the best careers in this growing technology world.

STEAM programs tend to be more abstract and add a little spice to the remaining subjects. Some STEAM programs use the arts as a tool to teach skills such as creative entrepreneurship or digital production.

We want to hear your thoughts! Do the arts belong in a STEM world or is STEAM just as valuable for our schools to incorporate? Many schools have chosen their side, which program would you want your children to be involved in?

Why Tech Entrepreneurs Should Attend College

Attending college is more than acquiring a degree in a particular field of study. It’s about becoming a part of a community so that you can begin to have new experiences, make partnerships, and learn from the people around you.
 
In the video below Nichole Pinkard, professor of computing and digital media at DePaul University, states that she is impressed that the digital software classes are in the same building as photography. 


Why is that important?


When you enter the world of computer programming, you begin to work on projects to aid or entertain people in their daily lives. There is nothing new under the sun. Many thoughts and ideas have been imagined, but not all have been executed. Even the ones that have been executed could always be improved by looking at them with a different perspective.

That’s what the college experience does for your mind. The college experience opens up a new world of inspiration. Many of us seek inspiration to finish or begin a project. On a college campus, around every corner, there is a new person with a new need to aid or a new experience to share.

College is about learning. Not just from your books, not just from your professors, but also from every other student who has a different outlook on life from your own. You’d be surprised what stories you hear from complete strangers that spark your next entrepreneurial idea.

The Hope of Urban Prep Academy

We all want to make sure that our black children receive better educational opportunities than we ever did.

The first thing we need to believe is that a great education for our children is possible, no matter what our background is. Once we have accepted the possibility of knowledge, the opportunity will begin to present itself.

Many of the young black men who currently attend Urban Prep Academy of Chicago, Illinois thought they weren’t good enough to even desire a college degree. However, now that they have become a part of this charter school, over 95% of these young men have been accepted into a four-year university!

College is more than getting a piece of paper that says you learned something. It is about networking with people who share similar goals and it’s about learning to take care of yourself as an adult for the first time.

Everyone should have the opportunity to experience the hope and excitement that comes with opening a college acceptance letter.

Urban Prep Academy is making that happen for young boys nationwide.  Watch the video below to see for yourself!

What would be some of Dr. King’s thoughts if he were alive today?

As I reflect on the 50th Anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr’s famous, “ I have a Dream” speech I couldn’t help but ponder the values my grandparents were teaching us during the 60s. Read More
