The First Great BISB STEAM Challenge

18 December 2017

One of the benefits of being part of the wider Nord Anglia community is the opportunity it gives for our school to take part in exciting educational initiatives. From September 2018, everyone at BISB will be involved in the great STEAM initiative which will be a series of projects aimed at developing the children’s skills. Nord Anglia have been working with MIT, one of the world’s greatest universities, to come up with a programme that will inspire and challenge all Nord Anglia students around the world.

What is STEAM?

Basically, STEAM is “making awesome stuff!” It combines Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Maths: all the disciplines required to make beautiful, purposeful things. Whether making a cake that’s lit up with LED lights, designing a suit made of recycled rubbish or constructing a rocket powered by chicken poo, STEAM is involved. It is important that the students we teach are not only prepared for their futures, but are able to be creative, inventive and able to find solutions to problems.

And the first challenge…..

Because BISB will be embracing STEAM from September, we have decided to give the children a taster of the great things to come. Every student, from Reception up to Year 13, has a cardboard tube which they can turn into anything they want! It is quite solid and difficult to cut, but this is so that the original shape is preserved. The tube might turn into the heel of a giant shoe, a chameleon or a lighthouse….. or, just decorated with some sequins and a splash of paint. However the students want to change their tube and show off how creative they can be, will be up to them!

The deadline…

Monday 15th January is the deadline. In that week there will be a special assembly when all the students in primary and secondary can bring in their tubes and display them altogether. Which will be the most creative tube? The most practical? We can’t wait to find out!
