'Creative thinking skills' nurtured at Academy ACL's STEAM Day

       The Academy for Advanced and Creative Learning held its third annual STEAM Day this March 20. STEAM is the acronym for science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics.
       The day included activities geared to those areas, emphasizing “the need for students to develop creative thinking skills with hands-on projects,” a press release states. “Nationally, STEAM and STEM educational projects for students aim to develop their abilities to be future problem-solvers, innovators, and inventors who are technologically literate, self-reliant, and logical thinkers.”
       The day included a presentation from the Colorado Ballet Society and guest presentations from regional community and business members.
       Started in 2010, Academy ACL is a District 11 charter school for grades K-8 gifted students at 2510 N. Chestnut St. Enrollment is about 280.
