The nation’s largest school district recently opened the doors of the Brooklyn STEAM Center, a 30,000-square-foot facility developed with high-tech industry leaders to help students identify career interests and learn how to pursue those careers.

The $17 million school focuses on science, technology, engineering, arts and math (STEAM) and is located at the Brooklyn Navy Yard, an industrial campus that houses more than 400 businesses across crative, industrial, technology and other sectors.
