What is STREAM?

At St. Bede School we are building a Science, Technology, Religion, Engineering, Arts and Math discovery center.

Through various partnerships, the STREAM curriculum focuses on four pillars of education.

  1. Inquiry Based Experiences
    Students are provided with context rich questions to stimulate curiosity. They are provided opportunities to engage in the content by designing their problem solving methods to draw conclusions.
  2. Integrated Curriculum
    Thematic units and lessons are developed collaboratively by core teachers. Teachers instruct on the content from their discipline with emphasis on the interconnectedness of subject areas.
  3. Project Base Learning
    Students study real world problems and investigate possible solutions.
  4. Career Awareness
    By studying real world problems, students are provided a context to understand the importance and future implications of concepts being studied.
