STEAM

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



Hero Image Instructions

  • To edit the hero photo, go into the settings of the Content Element (hover over the image and click the gear icon), go to Design > Background Image. Replace the photo with one you've uploaded to File Manager (1440 x 600 pixels recommended)
  • Edit the overlaid text in the Element Settings > Design > Header Content.

Expanding Panels Instructions

This is edited in the Shared Element "STEAM Expanding Panels." Either click the Shared button in the top right of this element on the page, or go out of Pages and into Elements and select "STEAM Expanding Panels"). Once there:

Within the STEAM Expanding Panels shared container, each panel exists as a Content Element.

  • To change out the image for a panel, go to that Content Element’s Settings > Design > Header Content and replace the image with another from your File Manager (985 x 600 pixels recommended; remember to center your subjects as cropping will occur responsively)
  • You can edit the text (heading, text, button) within a panel by editing it right in the body of the given Content element.
  • The element’s title before clicking(Explore, Experiment, etc…) is pulling from the title of the respective Content Element

Science

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.

discover

Technology

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.

construct

Engineering

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?

design

Arts

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.

Mathematics

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

Slideshow Instructions

This is edited in the Shared Element "STEAM Page Slideshow." Either click the Shared button in the top right of this element on the page, or go out of Pages and into Elements and select "STEAM Page Slideshow"). Once there, you can add/edit/remove slides by managing the Content Elements within this Shared Container.

Setup for a one-photo slide:

A Content Element within the STEAM Page Slideshow Shared Container with the following configuration:

  • (Under Design > Custom Class, the class “slideshow-item” should be entered)
  • Photo placed in Settings > Design > Header Content (recommended dimensions: 714 x 431)
  • H1 title, lead-in/paragraph descriptions, and button to learn more entered in the Content Element body

The easiest way to add a new slide is to copy and paste an existing slide and edit from there.

Setup for a two-photo slide:

A Content Element within the STEAM Page Slideshow Shared Container with the following configuration:

  • (Under Design > Custom Class, the class “slideshow-item” should be entered)*
  • Larger photo placed in Settings > Design > Header Content (recommended dimensions: 493 x 298)
  • Smaller photo placed in Settings > Design > Footer Content (recommended dimensions: 313 x 203)
  • H1 title, lead-in/paragraph descriptions, and button to learn more entered in the Content Element body

*The easiest way to add a new slide is to copy and paste an existing slide and edit from there.


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.

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.
