Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics (STEAM) impact every aspect of our daily lives and the reach of these subjects knows no boundaries across the world. With rapid changes in these areas transforming our global workforce, it is critical that all of our students understand and ideally experience the importance and breadth of STEAM course offerings and digital literacy opportunities through their educational endeavors.

DoIT supports all efforts to instill innovation and passion for STEAM in all students beginning with our youngest learners in pre-kindergarten through postsecondary education. DoIT has a vested interest in the development of a digitally literate workforce that cultivates creativity and advances all areas of STEAM. This website is focused on connecting students and educators with diverse and easily accessible STEAM opportunities.

The Illinois General Assembly authorized the Illinois Department of the Lottery to offer a special instant scratch-off game for the benefit of school STEAM programming with Public Act 101-0561.  More information regarding the School STEAM Grant Program will be available from the Illinois State Board of Education in fall 2020.
