Finnish STEAM education can be described as an innovative, multidisciplinary and collaborative approach for understanding the world around us.

STEAM derives from the letters Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics. STEAM is a way to carry out and enable cross-curriculum work: it integrates different aspects of more than one academic discipline to examine a theme. The purpose is to show students that in real-life situations knowledge is used across the fields of study. In Finland, we have a new curriculum promoting transversal competencies and cross-curricular themes that enables co-operation between subjects.

Finnish STEAM education encourages students to make creative innovations for real-life problems. This demands many 21st century skills: active search of information, multiliteracy, problem-solving skills, collaboration, and meaningful use of technology. In student-centered learning, the role of the student is to be an active designer, director, and evaluator of their own learning. The aim is to support and strengthen students’ learning skills and self-direction in both individual work and in teamwork.
