STEAM refers to Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths subjects.
STEAM skills and knowledge are not new to Pacific people.
The Toloa programme champions that Pacific peoples come from a lineage of navigators, explorers, innovators, and experts in STEAM. STEAM skills are adaptable in a vast ocean of career pathways and opportunities.
The Arts is defined within the Toloa programme as creative and innovative skills, processes and knowledge that are transferable into science, technology, engineering and maths careers.
