unafraid to generate big ideas
Doane Academy’s S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) program is dedicated to developing a community of young tinkerers ready to tackle 21st century problems with their creativity, individuality, and unique passions. Lower School students get practice in learning from their mistakes as they apply the steps of the engineering design process and engage in researching, imagining, planning, creating, testing, and improving. Our interdisciplinary S.T.E.A.M. courses provide Upper School students with open-ended, collaborative class structures which encourage them to pull content knowledge from a wide variety of other subjects in pursuit of problem solutions that they can truly call their own.
