STEAM is an approach to education that uses the following as access points for guiding student inquiry, dialogue, and critical thinking:
The end results are students who take thoughtful risks, engage in experiential learning, persist in problem-solving, embrace collaboration, and work through the creative process. These are the innovators, educators, leaders, and learners of the 21st century! (Adapted from EducationCloset.com)
You can pick up a Passport at any of the four participating locations.
To win the prize you must collect five (5) stamps, one from each category: S(cience), T(echnology), E(ngineering), A(rt), and M(ath).
Participants will need to visit the many amazing facilities throughout the City of Boca Raton to participate in programs and collect stamps.
No. All you must do is complete one program to earn one stamp. In all, participants need to complete five programs, one for each of the five letters of STEAM.
STEAM through September is available to anyone who is interested in participating. Most of the programming targets children between the ages of 5 and 12. Every program is a little different; check the passport or website for details. Children under 5 will need the help of an adult, and explorers over 12 may need to complete Wildcard Challenges (see next question) to make up for limited programming opportunities.
The prize is a gift bag created through the contributions of each center and our 2019 corporate sponsors. Content may vary. You can pick up your gift at any of the participating locations by presenting your completed passport to the staff at the front desk (Youth Services Desk at the Libraries).
All of the qualifying STEAM programs, including the open-ended programs, are only available throughout the month of September. Gift bags may be picked up from any of the participating locations until Sunday, October 3rd, 2021.
