1st MIT STEAM Fair

1st MIT STEAM Challenge & STEAM Fair

For the past four weeks, Year 7 to 9 students who were not preparing for the High School Musical or International Award were involved in this year’s first MIT-Nord Anglia STEAM Challenge which was entitled Epic Identity.

The challenge was inspired by the work of MIT Professor Leia Stirling and her student Richard Fineman. Leia is an engineer who develops wearable technology, as well as methods for testing them and measuring their efficacy. Here is a video where she explains one development they worked on to help astronauts: Haptic boots.

Students were tasked with coming up with an idea for a wearable product or tool that could enhance human performance. They needed to research the science behind their innovation and produce a display which would communicate all this information. After five hours of working, they presented their products to their peers and to visiting panels of judges at a STEAM Fair in the gym. 

It was fantastic to see all the hard work the students had done, how excited they were about their work, how well-prepared they were with information about their ideas, and how much they had learned to explain the scientific principles that made their ideas feasible. 

Congratulations to all the students on a job well done, and a thank you to them for taking on our first challenge with such enthusiasm. Groups were judged on their performance at the STEAM Fair (not on their products), and certificates will be presented to groups who particularly impressed the judges with the preparation and communication of their presentations and displays at Wednesday’s Key Stage 3 assembly.
