STEAM Education Add-On Endorsement

This South Carolina endorsement prepares educators to implement integrated curriculum in science, technology, engineering, the arts, and mathematics (STEAM). The four courses required for the endorsement in STEAM Education have been developed to train teachers in effective ways to integrate content, teach productive collaboration skills, and use inquiry-based approaches to solve problems.
