STREAM: Science Technology Reading Engineering Agriculture Mathematics is different from other Science Technology Engineering Mathematics (STEM) programs as it has an emphasis on developing reading skills as a foundation. The informational reading of STEM subjects can be a barrier for youth. The STREAM series begins with a reading overview that provides the core reading skills needed to get the most out of STEM activities.

Ed Farm equips educators in schools and communities with innovative tools and teaching strategies that support active learning for all students.
