How moving from STEM to STEAM will save the world.

We believe our girls will change the world and they believe it, too. We’ll share why a leading school in STEM education is purposefully adding the Arts into our school-wide curriculum. As an all-girls public school we recognize the need for women in STEM fields and will share how by combining the Arts with problem solving we’re developing young women leaders who have the needed mindsets to change their world.
