Moving MattersKC offers arts integration + STEM related instruction that allows students to engage and persist in problem solving and gives students valuable opportunities in which to grow and learn. Arts Integration techniques employ mutually reinforcing concepts to support the Project Lead The Way (PLTW) STEM related curriculum.
We integrate dance and movement into the STEM curriculum to create more meaningful and interesting experiences for students. Integrating dance with the STEM subjects benefits students as they work to embodying and represent STEM concepts and processes with dance and movement. The use of dance can also create new interests in STEM related subjects by presenting them in a new or novel way.
When students integrate dance with STEM concepts, it changes their perspective on the problem to be solved. It has the potential to generate new questions that generate new solutions.
Our approach fosters creativity, collaboration, critical thinking and communication.
