Nord Anglia Education Europe STEAM Festival

Nord Anglia Education Europe STEAM

The Nord Anglia Education Europe STEAM Festival took place in November and we have so much to tell you about it!

A group of Champittet students travelled all the way to Prague to take part in this unique event, hosted by the Prague British International School. For this year's theme, Cities of the Future, students had to challenge their creativity and come up with practical responses to real-life disaster scenarios.

On their first day, the mixed-school teams learnt how to develop innovative solutions for protection and prevention against disasters. Among them:

  • an SOS emergency app
  • a robot to detect gas leaks
  • smart houses which detect rising heat and wind
  • flood defense systems

Would the teams' constructions sustain the violent shakes of an earthquake or the strength of a tsunami wave? Their work was put to the test with the help of simulators.
