The Nord Anglia STEAM festival is a chance to develop and celebrate our skills across the science, technology, engineering, arts and math, and also demonstrate creative and innovative ways of solving real world problems.
We believe these areas will become increasingly important to the future world of our students, in particular, the ability to combine knowledge from various disciplines and bring it together in innovative ways.
After all, the biggest problems our world will face don’t care which subject you use to solve them!
The Nord Anglia STEAM festival is part of our ongoing vision for STEAM education which includes our partnership with MIT, the world’s leading education institution for STEAM fields. We are proud to welcome two special guests from MIT to our event, Carole Urbano and Aimee Gillespie.
In the “NAE-MIT Major Challenge” which will span across the duration of the event, students will undertake demanding challenges and will need to use collaboration, creativity and ingenuity to get the best out of themselves and their teams to find successful solutions.
The “STEAM Workshops” will be short but intense workshops focussing on a teaching you new skill or craft, and most of which will have you build something of your own to keep.
The event will also feature other mini challenges throughout, so make sure you’re ready at any time to put your mind to the test.
We hope you enjoy your time at NISC and look forward to seeing the exciting solutions you will create!
