At present, in the U.S., there is a shortage of students trained in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). According the U.S. Department of Commerce, STEM occupations are growing at 17% while other occupations are growing at 9.8%. Limai Academy has addressed this shortage by focusing our curriculum on STEAM education and incorporating “the Arts” into the lesson plans.
Limai Academy teaches an innovative STEAM program that develops student’s skills for the future. Our educational approach to learning uses Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Mathematics as an access point for guiding student dialogue, inquiry, and critical thinking.
Our teachers give students the tools and methods to explore new and creative ways of problem-solving, implementing solutions, innovating, and linking multiple diverse fields together. The arts naturally complement science and technology, so that learning STEAM allows for a more holistic understanding and a cohesive education in the classroom.
