  1. i’ve heard some areas have changed to “steam” – adding “the” arts to the curriculum

    however – these are all tools

    what about learning and practicing how to just improve relations, how to communicate in a manner that improves relationships?

    what about learning how homo sapiens are related to the rest of life on this planet? and the elements, and about our bodies – both sexes . . .

    i never hear anything about what really matters . . . only about those tools, out of context


  2. Good point. The tools of STEM DO get a lot if of the attention, whether or not you consider art to be one of them. I happen to be one of the instructors at the Edmonds School District STEM Program, and I am proud to say that I challenge my students to improve their skills group communication, team management, and public speaking at several points along my curriculum. Technical writing is strongly enforced and several other classes as well. You should come down to the event and meet our students and see what they can do, they will be running most of the event.
