Made By Teachers For Teachers
Time is precious and limited in the classroom. With more requirements of teachers than ever before, there has been a slow and steady cut of vital content. Science and the Arts are just a few of the subjects that have been placed on the back burner. DreamSTEAM was developed by teachers who have over 65 years of combined teaching experience in the classroom and who saw a need for science to be prioritized and made simpler for teachers to access. Our goal is to provide STEAM lessons based on NGSS standards that infuse technology, helping students to become problem-solvers ready for the unknown STEAM careers of the future.
