When making your program choice, STEAM Makes Sense! “Building in opportunities in STEM classes to develop and use the principles, skills and ingenuity of the arts can “serve as an on-ramp for STEM success for underrepresented students. Engaging students’ strengths using art activities increases motivation and the probability of STEM success,” by “offering more diverse learning opportunities and greater access to STEM for all types of learners” (Jolly 2014).
