STEAM

STEAM stands for
Science Technology Engineering Arts and Math.

 

The ALMS PTA STEAM Committee seeks to promote the importance of these subjects to both students and parents. STEAM subjects will be increasingly important for most if not all future career paths. Middle school is a critical stage for students to explore these subjects in the classroom and through hands-on activities outside of class.
