A New Kind
O
f Art.

Singling out Science, Technology, Engineering and Math – the STEM subjects, won’t create the innovation needed for the growing economy.  We must add Art + Design into the equation - to recognize the core values offered by the creative industry and expand the field into STEAM.

WHY JCAL’S STEAM?  

Our customized programs will enhance students’ exposure to new technologies that bring awareness of these new trends and incorporate these new technologies into the innovative and creative thinking of creating arts. By applying the new technologies, our STEAM program aims to provide exciting and new approaches to problem solving skills, skills-set development, and entrepreneurship into general art programs. This training will give them an early jump start on their educational paths and/or offer them the ability to increase their career or educational opportunities, which will enable them to navigate the modern world and assist them in becoming productive citizens. 

 

THE PROGRAM MODEL

Our STEAM program brings a team of start-up engineers and designers to help young children and teenagers gain real world experience and exposure to technology and forward-thinking training. We will introduce students to the broad range of STEAM careers, encouraging empowerment and confidence in students’ performances in math and science. Above all, we believe in equal access to information, resources, and communication tools as it relates to STEAM programs and careers.

 

UNIQUE APPROACH IN ARTS AND TECHNOLOGY

  • “Fail-first” style of leaning that focus on expressing yourself through building

  • Mentorship and Entrepreneurship: real life working experience with the startup engineers and learning how to run a business

  • Accountability and Teamwork: work together, fail together, and create together 

  • “Think like an artist” approach to inspire forward thinking.

  • Women in Tech and Diversity: In the creative process, gender and race are not the agenda, only creativity counts.
