Dear LIS Students and Parents,
Leman International School is committed to providing its students with a high quality education that emphasizes 21st century skills to succeed in the workplace and life beyond the classroom. We are therefore pleased to introduce our STEAM programme offered in collaboration with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).
The STEAM programme offers an innovative, interdisciplinary approach to teaching and learning Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Maths. This cross-disciplinary approach prepares our students for the real world and all the dynamic and multifaceted challenges they will face. In collaboration with MIT, LIS is working with the best in the field to devise a series of real-world, interdisciplinary challenges each semester for students to work on through collaboration, innovation, and experimentation.
We would like to announce an exciting opportunity for LIS students in Grades 6 and 7. Students in these grades may apply to be considered to attend the trip. Four students in these grades will be selected from among those who have applied to travel to Boston and visit MIT on April 29-May 5, 2018. Selected students will meet leading MIT scientists, build and experiment in workshops, and learn about the new discoveries that will shape their future. Activities during the MIT visit include everything from building robots, to bioengineering, to coding. Your child will also have a chance to visit MIT and Harvard allowing them to experience student life at one of these prestigious universities.
The approximate cost will be $2500 (16,500 RMB). The students will be staying in residence dorms under the supervision of an LIS teacher.
If you are interested in applying to attend the MIT trip in the spring, or if you have any questions, please contact Mr. Ricohermoso at firstname.lastname@example.org. More information about the trip is coming soon.
