Clemson University Ph.D. student Abby Baker has developed workshops to deliver concepts related to science, technology, engineering, the arts and mathematics (STEAM) to elementary school students. The workshops are part of a Clemson Creative Inquiry project that sees Clemson students translate college-level STEAM projects for a fifth-grade audience. The lessons are a valuable extension in the education of Clemson students and the fifth graders they teach, but Baker is thinking even bigger. She is testing a model that she hopes will be copied across a state with a growing need for students interested in science and math.
