Nord Anglia STEAM Festival for Southeast Asia

Northbridge International School Cambodia is proud to host the inaugural Nord Anglia STEAM Festival for Southeast Asia.


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!

Mr Jack Cooper
NAE-MIT Programme Regional Lead (Southeast Asia)





Special Guests

Carole Urbano comes to the MIT/Nord Anglia collaboration from MIT’s Scheller Teacher Education Program and Education Arcade where she introduced teachers and students to hands-on, playful learning tools. She is typically found in close proximity to multi-colored Post-its.



Aimee Gillespie was a volunteer at the MIT Museum, teaching museum visitors how to calculate with slides rules and detect particles in a cloud chamber, for three years before joining the MIT/Nord Anglia collaboration. She completed her Master’s in MIT’s Department of Earth, Atmospheric, and Planetary Sciences in 2013.

Nord Anglia Education is working with MIT to introduce your child to this innovative way of learning the STEAM subjects, which encourages creativity, experimentation, and teaches them how to apply their skills to real-world situations.

Every year we send groups of students to MIT to experience MIT and STEAM in action. We also proudly send teachers from all of our schools to MIT every year for world-class professional development. We also have great in-school events, such as the NAE-MIT STEAM Festival and other challenges for students to get involved in throughout the year.

In addition to providing exciting opportunities for students to apply their learning to real-world problems, we aim to help students develop the following “Learner Ambitions” through STEAM.
