In today’s rapidly evolving world, preparing the future workforce is more important than ever. One key to this preparation is promoting STEAM education – Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics – particularly among middle school-aged students. In this blog post, we explore how organizations like The Creative Coast and dedicated individuals like Ambria Berksteiner are working to bridge the gap and inspire the next generation of innovators.
Meet Ambria Berksteiner: A STEAM Expert and Engineer
One key player in this STEAM education initiative is Ambria Berksteiner. Ambria is an engineer with a dual degree in industrial and systems engineering from Auburn University.

These workshops cover various aspects of science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics.
Ambria is not just an educator; she’s an inspiration to young students, showing them that STEAM fields are not limited by gender or background. She has firsthand experience of the impact that exposure to STEAM education can have on a student’s future. Ambria’s journey started when she was a junior at Savannah Arts Academy, participating in the Explorer post program, which exposed her to different careers in the area.
