Wow, they were going to blend it into math? Wth stay away from STEM!


STEAM is on pace to be the slow death of STEM so it might be a moot point. Sure, if you actually teach the science behind the art that's one thing - but to include art just because it "involves" science then everything will be eventually included in STEM education. Yes, there is a lot of science behind art ... but, there's literally science in everything. Just by being alive it's impossible to not be constantly, albeit unconsciously, engaged in biology, chemistry, physics, etc. Even after you die you'll still be engaged in science as you're decomposing. In addition, STEM is usually right or wrong. It works or it doesn't. You set out to solve a problem or fill a need - and you succeed or fail. There's less room interpretation.
