Strategic Focus Area: STEAM Education
STEAM programs “educate both halves of the brain and prepare students for success in a world that values a well-rounded and innovative workforce.”
~ Representative Suzanne Bonamici (D-OR)
Wells International Foundation is a strong proponent of the STEM to STEAM movement – that is, putting the Art in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. Creative geniuses such as Leonardo Da Vinci, Albert Einstein and Steve Jobs were all highly artistic as well as scientific in their pursuits.
Through our STEAM SFA, WIF intends to help young girls and women embrace and pursue STEM careers and to excel at them by developing their artistic talents to their fullest potential.
We focus on the provision of opportunities for:
- Educators to learn how to incorporate arts into methodologies for teaching math and science
- Young girls to discover and embrace STEAM activities
- College/graduate student women pursuing STEAM disciplines to maximize their chances of success in their chosen fields
WIF also acknowledges that technology can be a powerful means of introducing the arts to previously unexposed or underexposed audiences.
