About STEAM Ahead

STEAM Ahead is a collaboration between the University System of New Hampshire, the Manchester School District, the business community and Manchester Community College. The organization is made up of professionals from science, technology, engineering, arts and math who are passionate about closing the education gap for underrepresented youth. Programs to promote STEAM education are developed with partnering organizations to create impactful learning experiences for middle school and high school students. The curriculum developed for this program is coordinated under a project and inquiry-based educational structure. STEAM students are able to learn academic and life skills in a standard, realistic approach hosted in an exploratory learning environment. STEAM Ahead aspires to enable students to pursue STEAM education preparing these students for higher education and careers in these fields.
