The first rule of STEAM at St. Johnsbury Academy Jeju is: You Never Know What to Expect. STEAM usually is an acronym that represents Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics. At St. Johnsbury Academy Jeju, the “E” can also be Entrepreneurship, Economics, or it can be the “E” in team.
The main goal of STEAM is to inspire students to find a passion for something new, and develop their creative and problem solving abilities – but STEAM at SJA Jeju goes beyond developing and making. There are regular themes around communicating ideas, selling ideas to others, and team building.
We also look at important creators from all over the globe and analyze their inventions, taking a deep look at critical technical and socio-economic issues and how they influence success.
In the future as the program evolves we plan to infuse our curriculum with other successful models, while also connecting with guest instructors who are specialists in various areas.
