By tackling real-world challenges across the subjects of science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics (STEAM), your child will develop transferable skills such as flexibility, creativity and communication. They will be encouraged to experiment rather than wait for instructions, and will learn that collaboration and critical thinking can solve even the trickiest problems.
Nord Anglia Education is also 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.
STEAM Teacher Workshops
Our STEAM teachers participate in workshops at MIT that expose them to the forefront of STEAM research and thinking. Every summer, Nord Anglia teachers visit MIT to receive hands-on training from MIT researchers and renowned academics. Activities include discussions and workshops with leading engineers and scientists about topics such as climate change, food production technologies, city planning and gaming among other things.
Science and technology are traditionally taught separately. Used together they are tools for cracking some of the world’s greatest puzzles. Our in-school challenges encourage students to work together every term to find innovative and creative solutions to complex problems. For example, thousands of Nord Anglia students around the world recently used their creativity and problem-solving skills to tackle space exploration issues, which scientists and engineers are facing today. These included students working to improve the quality of life for astronauts on the International Space Station, designing a filtration system for Mission MOXIE to use on Mars and solving the problem of space debris to make space exploration sustainableAmazing things happen when you blend the natural curiosity of youth with the learning style of one of the world’s most influential universities.
