Legacy Goes Full Steam Ahead Earns Legacy Tech Moniker
It’s getting very STEAM-y at Legacy Christian Academy, but that has nothing to do with the late-season heat spells the SCV has experienced as of late. But this “STEAM” is hot, too – because if you want to secure a career in this highly-competitive global 21st-century economy, chances are that you’ll need a firm grip on Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics (STEAM).
A recent Georgetown study on the US workforce found that over 55 million career positions may go totally unfilled because of our nation’s skill gaps, primarily in STEAM-related fields; the findings led to a national conversation on STEAM in schools.
“That’s because STEAM education, when incorporated into daily practice and programming, creates learners who are collaborators, problem solvers and risk takers,” says Legacy Co-founder and Superintendent Tim Borruel. “At Legacy, we encourage curiosity and teach hands-on methods of inquiry so that students can best explore their ideas. We provide countless resources so that children have the opportunity to reflect on their findings and even implement their solutions. These are the skills that CEOs the world over are looking for – and they’re present in spades at Legacy.”
Legacy administration, staff and students continue to lead the way in STEAM – which is why the school is often called, “Legacy Tech.” “The nickname correlated to the remarkable increase in investment in not only state-of-the-art technology for every classroom, as well as our two new dedicated Science and Innovation Labs, but our investment in people and our culture, too. STEAM doesn’t happen in a vacuum; every teacher, whether their specialty is English or Physics, has been trained on how to incorporate STEAM into their teaching so that we are best equipping our students with 21st-century skills. We joke that Legacy is, ‘full STEAM ahead’ – but it’s true! Our faculty, programming, curriculum, classrooms, tech acquisitions… when it comes to STEAM, they’re all light years ahead of what most other schools are able to offer now – and that’s providing life-changing opportunity to our students,” says Borruel.
