Finally Friday #7 {STEAM Education}

A little late getting this up, but hey, it's still Friday, so it's all good.  I also got a little carried away when I started listing all the websites I've been scouring... So here's your FF#7!!  Fridays are busy but if you read this, you'll have something to talk about at happy hour.

It's about to get STEAMy...

I have read a lot this week about {STEAM Education}, so I decided to devote this week's Finally Friday to various articles (along with things I've pinned and an appy infographic) I've come across about it.  They are all similar in that they are describing how it's a growing educational framework.  I wouldn't say this is necessarily a new initiative, but there has been a bit of buzz around it in the past month.  Here we go...full STEAM ahead!
