STEAM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics. By providing STEAM education here at Ford Heights, we are giving students the opportunity to be creative, the chance to learn and apply inquiry skills as they collaborate with others. STEAM fosters engineering and design thinking and helps students master math and science concepts.
Many STEAM jobs each year go unfilled and there is a huge underrepresentation of women in STEAM fields. Ford Heights has a mission to bridge this gap with our students. We are preparing them for a STEAM future.
