What is STREAM?

STEM + Religion + the Arts = STREAM

STEM Education emphasizes the progression of interdisciplinary studies in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math; STREAM EDUCATION also incorporates the creativity and expression of the Arts and our faith as integral components of a 21st century Catholic education.

What is STREAM like in a classroom?

  • Lessons based on STREAM principles promote a higher level of critical thinking skills and a deeper understanding of content materials because concepts are reinforced across multiple subject areas
  • STREAM activities are hands-on; projects based, and have a relevant application in the real world
  • It inspires teachers to include and develop 21st century instructional strategies at every grade level
  • STREAM takes learning outside the traditional classroom experience through customized fieldtrips and dynamic, interactive outreach programming in collaboration with community partners

STREAM is not a new curriculum, but rather a framework for impactful instruction and meaningful learning.

Bishop Robert Barron has launched a new program that engages the relationship of faith, science, and reason, using videos, text, and resources (including a free set of posters depicting Catholic clergy and religious who did pivotal work in science). These resources can be found here.
