Teaming up at NAE STEAM Festival

At the beginning of November, nine pupils from Year 6 and three from Year 7 were selected to attend The Nord Anglia Regional STEAM festival hosted at Regents Pattaya.

NAE STEAM festival

As part of the selection process for the NAE STEAM Festival, the children had to think about our world which is overrun with single-use plastics. They needed to take a powerful image to portray the message that could be used to change attitudes.

Here are some of their entries:

Pupils from Nord Anglia schools in Asia and the Middle East attended the regional festival. It was a wonderful opportunity to come together and work on real projects. This year pupils listened to a key-note speaker from Ford who explained the design process and challenges whilst designing the Ford Ranger Raptor. Students then took part in various specialist STEAM workshops which included robotics, coding, 3D modelling, art techniques, photography and augmented reality, before focussing on an MIT inspired challenge.

This year’s challenge was called ‘extreme exposure’ which was based upon the research of MIT professor Allan Adams. Pupils were expected to research and present their findings of unfamiliar and difficult terrain and then create a device or develop a technology which would enable the exploration of that environment which humans could not otherwise reach. Our pupils had to research, present, discuss ideas, formulate plans, critique their work, rate their ideas, and then make and test prototypes, develop their initial ideas before presenting their final product. Examples of environments that were taken on by students included: Deep Sea Exploration, Black Holes, and Volcanoes. It was a wonderful opportunity to explore new ideas, collaborate with others (working with pupils and teachers from different schools).

It was an action-packed, fun-filled three days and all those who took part had a wonderful experience. Watch this space for more STEAM challenges coming soon…
