STEAM Education and Learning
In an increasingly tech-driven society, it is imperative to promote opportunities for all children to access the type of education which will enable them to shape the 21st-century world they’ll inherit. OTA's focus on Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics (STEAM) encourages students to develop strong acumen, become critical thinkers, and reimagine what could be.
Operation Turn Around’s STEAM initiative was established to increase the number of diverse people in STEAM fields. We do this by:
- Recruiting, training and developing students' interest in STEAM;
- Connecting students to programs, industry experts and mentors to accelerate careers, build confidence and diminish attrition;
- Supporting our partners in recruiting, training and developing students to increase the number of STEAM participants;
- Helping partners cultivate their alumni as leaders who will fuel transformative change in STEAM education both inside and outside the classroom.
