I’m Katya, a Year 12 student at the British International School of Chicago, South Loop where I’ve attended since Year 4. Last month, I was lucky enough to participate in a week-long event at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, made possible thanks to the collaboration Nord Anglia Education has.
It’s one of the biggest events in NAE’s calendar. STEAM Week @ MIT kicks off this weekend on 29 April and our students are buzzing in anticipation of what’s to come! An interesting fact unknown to many about MIT is its motto, “mind and hand”, or Mens et Manus in Latin. We would like to share a blog post by Mark Orrow-Whiting, Nord Anglia Education’s Director of Curriculum and Student Performance, on why he believes the “mind and hand” philosophy is integral to NAE’s STEAM curriculum, which has been enhanced in a collaboration with the university.
