Whilst governments focus on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths), a quiet revolution is slowly happening through the integration of Arts with STEM.

STEM is not a new concept, but rather a return to educational foundations, as exemplified by Dewey through the integration of multiple knowledge to explore concepts (Dewey, 1980). 

I come from a Montessori and Science background but continue to have an interest and fascination in Arts. I developed a course for pre-schoolers and primary schools’ students that focused on the integrating Science with Arts, using namely recycled products.

‘(Curriculum Integration) is rooted in a view of learning as the continuous integration of new knowledge and experience so as to deepen and broaden our understanding of ourselves and our world.’ (Beane, 1995, p.622).

Throughout the course, Science knowledge will be introduced through Arts and Arts knowledge was taught through Science.
