STEMarts Youth Program

About STEMarts@The Paseo youth program

The STEMarts@The PASEO Youth Program provides educational programming for our youth built around The PASEO festival and its visiting artists.  We bring local, national and international artists into the schools and we bring students to the festival for engaging STEAM experiences such as classroom workshops, online curriculum tools, artist talks or internship opportunities.

Our Youth Program allows students to collaborate with festival artists exploring STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) in their art making process. Students learn valuable STEAM skills through creative expression, social practice and collaboration. We believe that the challenge and potential of STEAM education is for all students to have access to the latest technologies and 21st century thinking, especially in rural areas with limited access. The PASEO is the perfect platform for local students and teachers to use these tools to play, explore and imagine a better world.

STEMarts@The Paseo Curriculum Tool
The STEMarst@The Paseo Curriculum Tool will take teachers behind the scenes of The PASEO festival. Teachers will get a glimpse into the creative process of select Paseo artists that will be in the Space Cloud for Youth Day. The curriculum tool will share examples of the artist’s work, highlight the science and technology behind their art and share STEAM activities. The curriculum tool is free to anyone to access and learn more about these artists and try out the STEAM activities.
