Tell me, what is it you plan to do
with your one wild and precious life?

STEAM is not just an acronym (heck, we went through all of the letters twice and still had to use "m" a couple more times...).  It is the whistling kettle on the old woodstove.  It is the evapotranspiration that draws water from the ground through the roots and out through the leaves of the maple tree.  It is the boiling down of the sap to its sweet essence.  It was used to drive the engines of the industrial revolution.  It is the mist that hangs around the mountains after a rain and the latent energy that is released when it condenses on the ground.  It is the gathering clouds of a thunderstorm about to break.  It is the intensity and vibrancy of youth being allowed to burst forth and it is a sign of a life fully lived. 

STEAM VT is a project started in the fall of 2017 by a group of educators and teens who are passionate about learning, exploring and being fully in the moment, together.  We are committed to working with the other organizations and individuals in our community that are dedicated to supporting youth and education - some of those groups have supported us bring our vision into reality.  We couldn't do it without them!  Please visit the links below for more information about our friends and supporting organizations:
