STEAM Day in Lower Primary

On Wednesday 6th June, all our students in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 took part in the STEAM Challenge ‘Street Smarts’.

The Street Smarts Challenge was set through our collaboration with MIT in Boston. The challenge asked children to find out about self-driving vehicles and to explore how they work.  Reception children used a variety of materials to build their own self-driving cars. In Year 1, the children used junk modelling to create their own self-driving vehicles. The children in Year 2 were challenged by Mr. Short to design a new self-driving DCIS bus.  They then used iPads and the app Showme, to create a short film describing their designs before sharing with their peers. Most importantly, the children really developed their team working and problem solving skills. 

In addition to this, we were very grateful that our Reception parent – Dr. Shweta Agarwala, a researcher at Nanyang Technological University, came in to talk to the children about self-driving cars and to share her expertise.  A fantastic day as we continue to develop STEAM at Dover Court.
