Embracing Collaboration, Creativity and Curiosity

Taking an interdisciplinary approach to teaching science and technology gives your child the skills needed to thrive in the 21st century. Your child will explore the leading edge of STEAM subjects using a university-inspired model of learning.

By tackling real-world challenges across the subjects of science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics (STEAM), your child will develop transferable skills such as flexibility, creativity and communication. They will be encouraged to experiment rather than wait for instructions, and will learn that collaboration and critical thinking can solve even the trickiest problems.

Nord Anglia Education is also working with MIT to introduce your child to this innovative way of learning the STEAM subjects which encourages creativity, experimentation, and teaches them how to apply their skills to real-world situations. Watch our film below to learn more about our collaboration with MIT:

In-School Challenges

Science and technology are traditionally taught separately. Used together they are tools for cracking some of the world’s greatest puzzles. Our in-school challenges encourage students to work together every term to find innovative and creative solutions to complex problems. For example, thousands of Nord Anglia students around the world recently used their creativity and problem-solving skills to tackle space exploration issues, which scientists and engineers are facing today. These included students working to improve the quality of life for astronauts on the International Space Station, designing a filtration system for Mission MOXIE to use on Mars and solving the problem of space debris to make space exploration sustainable. Amazing things happen when you blend the natural curiosity of youth with the learning style of one of the world’s most influential universities.

STEAM Teacher Workshops

Our STEAM teachers participate in workshops at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) that expose them to the forefront of STEAM research and thinking. Every summer, Nord Anglia teachers visit MIT to receive hands-on training from MIT researchers and renowned academics. Activities include discussions and workshops with leading engineers and scientists about such topics as climate change, bio-engineering and space exploration.
