K-12 Mens et Manus is an independent study that a team of graduate students at MIT Sloan School of Management embarked on. Driven by a common passion for improving the education space, our team hopes to help enhance people's understanding of MIT's STEAM education philosophy, as well as offer practical guidance on how to advance STEAM education in K-12 schools.
[Note: "K-12" is a US expression that refers to kindergarten to Grade 12, i.e. school grades prior to college. "Mens et Manus" is MIT's motto, which means "Mind & Hand" in Latin.]
