It’s Official! I’m STEAM Not STEM.

It’s official!  After performing more than 150 assemblies in elementary schools across the country, Team Schmitty The Weather Dog has been informed by teachers and principals everywhere that our Schmitty The Weather Dog Weather/Science Assembly is not just a STEM Enrichment Program. Oh really? Yup. Because we use literacy and music to inspire and excite kids to study science and weather, it’s actually a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, ARTS & Math) Enrichment Program!  Whew! Glad we straightened that out. Arf-Arf!
Team Schmitty The Weather Dog gets students excited about studying STEM . . . er, I mean STEAM subjects!

Meteorologist Ron, Author Elly & me, Schmitty The Weather Dog, stimulate students to get excited about studying STEM . . . er, I mean STEAM subjects!

Below are a few fun pics from some of my STEAM school visits . . .

But wait, there’s more! Besides the music and literacy, it seems that my show also inspires budding artist too.

And we couldn’t do our STEAM assembly without the kindness and support from all the pawsome principals!

I’m one lucky dog and can’t wait till the new school year. Full STEAM ahead. Arf-Arf!
