The Center for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math at Anoka High School is designed for students who want to explore the connections between the arts, sciences, engineering and math while further developing technology and computer skills. STEAM uses project-based learning and the design thinking model to engage students. The classes in the STEAM program will strenthen students abilities to be creative and flexible problem solvers, explore different ideas, and communicate well with others! Students have the opportunity to delve into 3D modeling, design and fabrication, dance, engineering and robotics, sculpture, photo/video/digital media, music, and more! We encourage a collaborative approach to learning that embraces technology, encourages unique solutions, welcomes creative and inventive thinking as well as problem-solving to prepare for careers in computer science, the arts and engineering.
