STEAM Excel is a cooperative program, among Trumbull County Schools and the Trumbull County Educational Service Center, that provides students with an opportunity to develop their academic and artistic talents in the disciplines of technology, art, dance, drama, and music. STEAM Excel stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics. The program focuses on supporting the development of 21st century skills such as critical and creative thinking, collaboration and communication.
The program began in 1991 as Arts/EXCEL and in 2014 was named STEAM Excel to reflect the addition of technology programming. The STEM classes currently being offered are Coding and Coding with Legos.
STEAM Excel develops and promotes the creative talents of students. Instruction encourages creativity and openness of expression while stressing process development, self-assessment and evaluation. The philosophy and atmosphere focuses on learning, literacy and life skills. The faculty consists of instructors who are practicing in their field of expertise.
