The Berkeley Carroll School


Our STEAM program combines STEM and the Arts in a interdisciplinary, integrated, real-world way.



Students in all divisions learn that science isn’t just a body of knowledge — it’s a process, a means of investigating and a tool for interpreting discovery.

Solutions to 21st century problems won’t come from traditional approaches. Our world needs leaders who are nimble problem-solvers, effective collaborators and ethical thinkers.

Engineering teaches students to draw on science and technology to make our lives better. Every engineering project begins with empathy. What questions do I need to ask to understand the dimensions of this problem?

From the field of art and design, students learn to generate ideas quickly, persue the barely imaginable and embrace failure as an indispensable part of the process.

Math can help us understand and solve problems, and it can also reveal breathtaking beauty and elegance.

STEAM at Berkeley Carroll

Berkeley Carroll’s STEAM initiative is focused on offering students exciting opportunities to delve deeply into Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math. But more important, STEAM is about pushing students and teachers to explore the intersections of these disciplines and how they can be used to solve real-world problems.

When we look at the complexity of the global economy, global challenges like climate change, political instability and immigration, and the centrality of technology in modern life, what’s clear is that a traditional education doesn’t provide adequate preparation for success in the 21st century. All of our students — the future scientists, yes, but also future literary editors, business people, nonprofit directors, educators, and arts administrators — will benefit from mastery of these skills.

STEAM Space at Lincoln Place

In 2018, Berkeley Carroll will open a 2,000-square-foot STEAM space, along with adjacent renovated science labs and a sculpture studio, to build on the school’s substantive STEAM offerings in both the middle and upper school divisions. Students will have more space to scale up projects, conduct long-term research, prototype and test inventions, and delve into robotics.

Renovations to our Lincoln Place building began in May 2016. Phase One will result in a dedicated Middle School library and a new theater classroom, which will open at the start of the 2016-2017 academic year.

The BC STEAM Fair provides opportunities for Berkeley Carroll's students and families to engage in hands-on activities so that they may explore, experiment, discover, design and create. In an atmosphere of fun, students experience science, technology, engineering and math. Activities are suitable for anyone from ages 3 and up.

The 2017 BC STEAM Fair will take place on Saturday, Feb. 11th. Tickets are free and will be available in January 2017. Online advance registration is required. (This event is open to the BC community only.)
