An educational movement combining science, technology, engineering, the arts and mathematics, STEAM-based education helps foster critical thinking, problem-solving, and collaboration by applying all the disciplines together. At Emmanuel Lutheran School in Asheville, we are full "STEAM" ahead as Western North Carolina’s first and only Christian Parochial Christian STEAM institution. We are proud to lay an educational foundation that helps our students do great things beyond middle school.

In this article, we are discussing some of the ways STEAM helps improve test scores and provide educational advantages for students.

Mrs. Tammy Reilly provides dedicated STEM and STEAM activities from our students in grades 1-8.

Some of the most recent activities include:

  • Water Xylophones
  • Catapult Challenge
  • Spaghetti Towers (tension and compression)
  • Turkey Trap
