105 students from 13 schools across the Nord Anglia Education family have gathered this week at one of the world’s best universities – MIT – to participate in the Global Campus STEAM experience at the Cambridge Science Festival.  

Our students are participating in an exclusive program of activities to help them develop their understanding of Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Math, otherwise known as STEAM. Not only are our students learning about these subjects directly from MIT scientists, researchers and students, they're also showcasing their own ingenuity by building a massive chain reaction machine – we hope the biggest that MIT has ever seen.

The program is giving our students a taste of MIT’s practical, hands-on approach to problem solving. They've been building and controling underwater robots that collect samples of water quality in the Charles River, designing and programming their own computer games, testing and making genetically modified foods, and working with electromagnets to power small toys. They're also visiting MIT and Harvard to get a taste of student life at these prestigious universities.
