Root & STEM is a free print and online STEAM (Science Technology, Engineering, Art, Math) resource to support K-12 educators in teaching digital skills and trends. Each issue will feature articles, activities, and lesson plans with a specific focus on STEAM education through creativity.

Root & STEM provides a holistic approach to education, merging heart and head while pushing the boundaries for how Canada thinks about science, technology, engineering, arts, and math. Our goal is to provide a platform for more diverse STEAM stories, lesson plans, and resources to be shared. Our hope is that educators will see the unique needs of their communities and classrooms reflected in the STEAM stories and resources that we share.
