S.T.E.A.M. Education

Minds at work

S.T.E.A.M. stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math. At Zucker Hebrew Academy we acknowledge these 5 areas of learning complement one another in numerous ways and provide the conditions for scientific observation, creative expression and experimentation.

S.T.E.A.M. is a holistic approach to education that emphasizes hands-on learning and fosters collaboration, innovation, and problem solving.

It involves brainstorming, designing, building, and testing of the ideas students learn in class. Through application, children are empowered and gain a deeper understanding and appreciation of these concepts. It provides a foundational understanding in each area and encourages students to apply this knowledge to real-world situations.


It all happens in the lab



Students engage in scientific inquiry through experiments, observations, and research projects, fostering a deeper understanding of scientific concepts.



As our students progress through their years at Zucker Hebrew Academy, our STEAM program offers the opportunity to incorporate cutting-edge technologies, such as coding and robotics, exposing students to real-world applications of technology and encouraging digital literacy.



Hands-on projects in MakerSpace encourage students to design, build, and test solutions to real-world problems, developing engineering skills and a mindset of innovation.



Our Makerspace emphasizes creativity and artistic expression, allowing students to explore various artistic mediums and integrate art into their projects, promoting a STEAM approach rather than STEM alone.



Through measurements, calculations, and the application of mathematical concepts in their projects, students reinforce mathematical skills and see the practical applications of math in real-life scenarios.

Our Commitment to Fostering Skills

Our school is committed to fostering creativity, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills through our dedicated MakerSpace. By providing students with opportunities to engage in hands-on projects, we aim to:

Their Creativity

MakerSpace activities encourage students to think outside the box, explore their interests, and express themselves creatively.

Critical Thinking

Through project-based learning, students are challenged to analyze problems, think critically, and develop innovative solutions.

Enhance Problem-
Solving Skills

MakerSpace projects involve overcoming challenges and setbacks, fostering resilience, and honing problem-solving skills essential for success in various fields.
