Last week, Associate Head of School for Academics Anne Glosky introduced KCD’s new STEAM Certificate to upper school students. The goal of the STEAM Certificate is to acknowledge and honor the STEAM curriculum that some of our students are already pursuing at KCD and to encourage other students to take classes and pursue a variety of learning opportunities in this area. Ms. Glosky said that there has already been strong student interest in the Certificate.
“I think the new steam STEAM certificate will open up new doors for students,” said senior Mitchell Dreher. “It will allow students to explore an ever-growing field.”
“The STEAM Certificate is an amazing way to get people involved with KCD’s STEAM opportunities as well as their communities,” said freshman Tala Saad. “I'm really excited to see the people that this brings to the STEAM community, and I especially love the final project to finish it all off. I can't wait to see what people create and come up with.”
The program components of the STEAM Certificate were developed by a committee consisting of Mary Clay Edinger, Mark Endicott, David Miller, Tim Rice, Sarah Shartzer, Brian Wagner, Jenni Williams, and Rosanne Zabloudil. We’d like to thank this group for their passion for STEAM education at KCD. In addition, thanks to Peter Huestis, Amy Mendel, Ann Ponniah, and Kent Martin for their ongoing support of STEAM courses and programming across all divisions at KCD.
