Embracing Collaboration, Creativity, and Curiosity
By taking an interdisciplinary approach to teaching science and technology, we give your child the skills they need to thrive in the 21st century. Your child will explore the leading edge of STEAM subjects using a university-inspired model of learning.
By tackling real-world challenges across the subjects of science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics (STEAM), your child will develop transferable skills such as flexibility, creativity, and communication. They'll be encouraged to experiment rather than wait for instructions and will learn that collaboration and critical thinking can solve tricky problems.
Nord Anglia Education works with MIT to introduce your child to innovative STEAM learning, encouraging their creativity, experimentation, and application of skills to real-world situations.
STEAM Teacher Workshops
Our STEAM teachers participate in workshops at MIT that expose them to the forefront of STEAM research and thinking. Every summer, Nord Anglia teachers visit MIT to receive hands-on training from MIT researchers and renowned academics. Activities include discussions and workshops with leading engineers and scientists about topics like climate change, food production technologies, city planning, or gaming, among other things.
Our In-School MIT Challenges
Science and technology are traditionally taught separately. Used together, however, they become tools for cracking some of the world’s greatest puzzles.
Our in-school challenges encourage students to work together every term to find innovative solutions to complex problems. For example, thousands of Nord Anglia students around the world recently used their creativity and problem-solving to tackle space exploration issues that scientists and engineers are facing today. Students worked to improve the quality of life for astronauts on the International Space Station, designing a filtration system for Mission MOXIE to use on Mars, and solving the problem of space debris to make space exploration sustainable.
Amazing things happen when you stimulate the natural curiosity of youth using the learning style of one of the world’s most influential universities: MIT.
