STEAM: Adding the ARTS to SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY, ENGINEERING AND MATH.
Youth STEAM is a proposed 12-week arts-based STEM after-school workshop for 11th & 12th graders. Estimated start date is Oct or Nov 2013.
Students will dedicate afternoons to a team STEAM project under the mentorship of their instructors. Artists, educators and scientists may propose course outlines that they are interested in teaching.
A sample course outline is provided for you to outline the details of your proposal. Please incorporate at lease one field trip into the program. List out all necessary supplies required for the workshop.
Course may include one instructor and an assistant instructor. If the enrollment is over 12 students then a second instructor will be allowed. The Youth STEAM Budget outlines independent contractors at the following rates:
Lead Instructor - $2,000 / Asst Instructor - $1,500
Students will be encouraged to participate by receiving a monthly bus pass and small stipends if they successfully complete the 12-week workshop. Space 4 Art will also be looking into collaborations that allow students A-G credits, which can be applied towards college requirements. Stipends will be given to students during a culminating community presentation.
Example course information may include ideas such as Software Performance Ensemble (computer code & music), Musical Kites (kite and paper speaker construction & sound art) and Community Water Garden (Construction of elevated garden incorporating water, technology and art).
This program is pending funding and final sponsorship may reshape some details of this project.
