Fairview Heights, IL -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/02/2015 -- The highly anticipated arrival of a dynamic STEAM Academy for pre-kindergarten through fifth grade has finally arrived! Elite Scholars STEAM Academy is expanding its learning environment by adding highly functional learning labs that will foster their students' hands on learning experiences in Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics.
Elite Scholars STEAM Academy (http://www.facebook.com/elitescholars) is a multimedia-learning environment for grades PK-5 that fosters an individualized approach to academic success. The school model provides children with unconventional educational opportunities through science, technology, engineering, agriculture/arts, and mathematical experiences that are far beyond the traditional approach to learning. The design model engages all children in hands-on learning experiences that encourage experimentation, creativity and the development of problem solving skills within a place of brilliance, astonishment, bliss, and amazement.
Elite Scholars STEAM Academy is dedicated to preparing today's students for the 21st century by providing them with an education that helps them understand the complexity of the world. They believe that the ideal education should be about providing tools that can be used to understand and interpret the world and its interrelated nature.
Currently, Elite Scholars STEAM Academy is looking to expand by providing some of the best supplementary learning tools to their students. The academy's plan includes developing a fully functional science lab, recording studio, newsroom, dance, and music labs where their students will receive industry specific hands-on experiences.
In order to implement their expansion plan, Elite Scholars STEAM Academy needs funding support. Due to the need of funding, they have just started an Indiegogo campaign. Though their overall requirement is much higher, the funding goal for the Indiegogo campaign has been fixed at $50,000. If funding is secured the renovation will begin in May and end by August 2015.
As we invite potential backers to be a part of this crowdfunding initiative, Elite Scholars STEAM Academy's administrator, Anetrise Jones, says, "By contributing to our project you ensure that our students are equipped for STEAM careers in the future by enhancing our rigorous curriculum and developing new aged innovators, entrepreneurs, and problem solvers of the 21st century. We want to run a school that is consistently adapting to the needs of our ever changing technological world."
