Ford Making its' STEAM Curriculum Available to Educators FREE

Because the U.S. potentially faces a massive STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) labor shortage by 2022, Ford announced earlier this month that it would make its STEAM curriculum available to educators free of charge. In 2014, the Ford Motor Company Fund introduced the Ford STEAM Lab, a digital-blended learning program that takes students through a hackathon-style brainstorming session and exposes them to STEM careers and tech entrepreneurship. The program adds an arts component to help students use creativity and innovation in problem-solving. Ford decided to make the curriculum available after the successful #TeacherHack: Using Technology to Disrupt Dropout Rates event, a two-day session held earlier this year for teachers that was modeled after the student STEAM Lab.
