MIT STEAM Festival

In May this year, four BISS Puxi students travelled to America to attend the Nord Anglia STEAM festival at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). This event saw over 100 students from 26 schools leave their respective continents to meet in Boston. Anamay, Ben, Curtis and Joseph were the students selected from BISS Puxi. The aim was to give students the opportunity to further develop skills in Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics (STEAM).

STEAM courses are designed to encourage the design thinking process, encourage collaboration and nurture creativity in learners. As part of the Nord Anglia collaboration, the students had access to the world class facilities at MIT whilst also working with students and professors.

A highlight was Professor David Wallace’s 2.009 Product Engineering Processes class - the most oversubscribed course at MIT. The pupils worked in mixed teams to create incredible inventions such as futuristic games and shopping systems.

It is impossible to quantify exactly how much the students from BISS Puxi gained from this once-in-a-lifetime experience. They had the chance to work with similar minded, academically curious students from around the world. One thing that can be said with absolute certainty is that they would all love the opportunity to go back to MIT one day to either study or just to reflect on this trip and the friendships built during it.  

Well done to all involved!
