The Steam Team is made up of a select group of students who are given an opportunity to take ownership of their own learning. The students on the Steam Team are given time to explore their own passions, encouraging curiosity and creativity. It provides students with a choice in what they want to learn. The Steam Team encourages life-long learning, imagination, perseverance, self-awareness, and adaptability.

The Steam Team meets once a week for 60 minutes during school. After mini-lessons on what is appropriate, students choose a topic to study with teacher approval. Students will be given time to work on their project with the teacher serving as a facilitator. As an end project, students must present their topic to an audience. Students will be given several weeks to research and prepare their presentation.
