North Salem Middle and High School students are embracing STEAM – science, technology, engineering, the arts and mathematics – every day. They are using creative thinking to find many alternative solutions as they problem-solve in the classroom. Students are learning to explore, learn from failures, be persistent, work hard and have fun. They are discovering that skills like teamwork and communication are essential and applying these problem-solving skills learned in the classroom widely in their school and community activities and lives.

Please view the below video for examples of how students are learning to become makers in the areas of STEAM.
