We're shaping the next generation of makers and problem solvers!
The Wolfsonian's STEAM programs are museum field trips that use art and design to introduce K–12 classrooms to drafting, geography, biology, geometry, ecology, algebra, and more. In partnership with Miami-Dade County Public Schools (MDCPS), each STEAM curriculum hones students' observational, critical thinking, analytical, and communication skills to boost knowledge of STEAM fields—Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math.
Classes engage with the Wolfsonian collection through close looking and tactile learning. Alone or in groups, students spot technological and design details and imagine how objects were used, where, and by whom. Principles of perspective, scale, volume, and angles help kids formulate three-dimensional understanding of objects and think about improvements for today and tomorrow.
By the end of each STEAM course, students emerge energized and better prepared to take on the challenges of our future.
