STEM+Arts (STEAM) Program
Responding to a national conversation regarding the importance of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math, The Rye Arts Center has integrated the Arts into this curriculum discussion, recognizing the important role that the arts play in developing innovation and creativity, alongside the STEM based subjects. The Rye Arts Center is embarking on offering innovative programming to prepare students for the art and design world of the 21st century, integrating science, technology, and math and computer skills into many of our class offerings. Our newest arts education curriculum offerings include 3D printing and design, Lego Engineering, ‘Scratch’ and ‘Processing’ computer programming, 3D animation using ‘Blender’ and Minecraft animation and creative building with littleBits and Makey Makey technology. It is our intent to bring this innovative STEM+Arts based curriculum to all in our community.
