10:00- 10:45 a.m.STEAM and Design Thinking at the High Museum
Kindergarten-8th Grade
For thousands of years, artists have been using the world around them to be innovators, creative problem solvers, and critical thinkers - just like we ask our students to do in the STEM/STEAM classroom today. Join museum educators from the High Museum of Art as they explore how creative problem solving and design thinking is key to designing interactive and engaging exhibitions that show innovative artistic solutions to contemporary issues.

Alliance TheatreVideo - Arts Integration Strategies (Statues/Tableau)The Alliance Theatre Institute is proud to serve as a community partner for schools that focus on STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and math) programming and certification. Through our programs, teachers learn arts-integrated strategies, such as statues and tableau, that serve any content area and can be applied to their next lesson, unit of study, and/or project-based learning.  https://vimeo.com/647339170/c4bbbd839dK-5rebecca.pogue@alliancetheatre.org
Alliance TheatreVideo - Introduction to Arts IntegrationThe Alliance Theatre Institute partners with school districts and schools to deliver professional learning for educators and arts integrated and/or theater-based instruction for students. General classroom teachers benefit from an arts integrated unit, which connects an art form (theater) with another academic subject (such as English language arts, social studies, mathematics, or science).  Explore the definition and how you can bring these arts integrated strategies back to your classroom.https://vimeo.com/647330738/f92c0a0fc2K-12rebecca.pogue@alliancetheatre.org
