5 free STEAM courses to study online
Caught up in the COVID-19 lockdown and need a few online courses to help sharpen your knowledge? That’s where these courses come in handy as they offer accessible, free and ready to use content to keep your brain buzzing during social isolation. STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics whereas STEAM refers to a curriculum where the arts are integrated. While both STEM and STEAM focus on the same scientific concepts, STEAM does it through inquiry and problem-based learning methods used in the creative process. It’s a more active and engaging way of learning.
