This issue of the Journal of STEM Arts, Crafts, and Constructions is focused on creativity - one of the most highly-desirable 21st Century skills on personal and global levels. Time, pedagogical knowledge, and resource constraints limit the number of opportunities for teachers to develop creativity in students. In this editorial, creativity development steps and strategies are illuminated along with specific roles of STEM subjects and the arts in development of student creativity. The processes of creativity development used in STEM and the arts are compared to each other and to the non-subject-specific creative process model of Root-Bernstein and Root- Bernstein; correlating steps are highlighted. The role of integration of the arts and STEM subjects for creativity development is also analyzed in this editorial, followed by the summaries and key findings of three practical and three research articles, which introduce arts-integrated projects fostering creativity development.
