Originated in the United States, STEAM education — Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics — is a problem-solving pedagogic approach. Inspired by the collaborative work that characterizes science and engineering, the model promotes student independence to transform the classroom into a learning community. Seven out of 10 young Uruguayans fail to graduate from high school. Applying the STEAM approach could potentially change that reality.
Incorporate the STEAM educational model so it can be replicated, and help shape citizens for the XXI century.
