BVIS HCMC STEAM Learning Month 2019

#STEAM Month in the Primary School

Our approach to STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths) is an innovative way to help your child develop skills for the future. Being part of Nord Anglia Education, BVIS HCMC has the access to exclusive benefits of NAE-MIT collaboration to help guide the way on cutting-through STEAM learning for our children.

BVIS HCMC STEAM Learning 2019

The month of May 2019 has seen children across the school take part in a number of STEAM activities and challenges.

We begin our STEAM learning by presenting children with a problem that they have to solve. For example, Year 6 children had to design a litter picker that would collect plastic waste in both water and on land. The children then have to apply their existing skills and understanding of STEAM to help them creatively solve the problem.

"Too often we give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve." Roger Lewin

Children in Year 4, 5 and 6 have been accessing STEAM through a mini-enterprise challenge. During this process children working in small teams to create and design a product, which they have to cost and sell to a potential investor. The investors suggest improvements, which then allows children to evaluate and improve their product – an important aspect of STEAM learning. Year 5 children were applying their scientific understanding of sound to create ear protectors, while Year 4 children were tasked with creating a children’s game that utilises their understanding of magnets. 

Children in Year 3 have been creating wearable tech for a superhero who has lost their powers.  Meanwhile our Year 1 and 2 children were helping a dragon from breaking her dragon eggs by creating a protective casing and a parachute for a safe landing. 

There have also been 3 STEAM home learning challenges this month:

Year 1 & 2 were challenged to create a wind-powered boat that can safely cross the EYFS splash pool .
