The Burkett STEAM Center is a schooled space that promotes learning through creative exploration, problem solving and hands-on investigation. Using physical materials, artistic elements and digital media, the center promotes education in the subjects of science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics through fostering intellectual curiosity. By integrating STEAM methods and disciplines with a standard elementary school curriculum, the center helps those students less likely to thrive in traditional classrooms make mental connections between their topics of study. This leads to better overall comprehension and improved test scores.
