“My students are going to get a better teacher out of this” at Barnard’s STEAM in the City

“The actual hands-on, experiential learning opened my eyes to so many more things I can do with my students outside of the classroom,” says one teacher of her experience in STEAM in the City Powered by Barnard and SNF.

The program, supported by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF), connects pre-K through 8th grade teachers in Upper Manhattan with scholars at Barnard College and local public parks. The aim is to share best practices STEAM teaching and offer ideas for how the city itself can become a classroom for this teaching, all to help infuse schools with enthusiasm around these subjects.
