STEAM at Berkeley Carroll
Berkeley Carroll’s STEAM program is focused on offering students exciting opportunities to delve deeply into the intersections of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math and develop skills to solve real-world problems.
A STEAM approach also cultivates a multitude of skills, including collaboration, flexibility, creativity and innovation. And the “A” in STEAM isn’t incidental: from the design process students learn to generate ideas, prototype, expect failure and learn from that failure to create an even better idea.
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.Learn More
STEAM Space at Lincoln Place
In 2017, Berkeley Carroll opened the Beta Lab, 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 have more space to scale up projects, conduct long-term research, prototype and test inventions, and delve into robotics.Learn More
