What is Steam?
And why is it important?
The world needs a generation of scientists, engineers, inventors and entrepreneurs who are ready to solve humanity’s biggest challenges.
STEAM is an interdisciplinary education model, exploring science, technology, entrepreneurship (engineering is more commonly used), art and maths, encouraging students to develop their creativity, problem solving and critical thinking skills in a real world context.
STEAM education removes limitations, encouraging independent learning and inspires wonder, critique, enquiry, and innovation. All of which are a perfect foundation for preparing young people for ‘future jobs’ – 65% of which the World Economic Forum predicts – haven’t even been invented yet.
The Steam School platform combines STEAM powered project based learning with weekly broadcasts from global STEAM experts.
Key features include:
WEEKLY LIVE BROADCASTS
Steam School hosts 6 missions every academic year exploring some of the world’s most pressing issues, showcasing #STEAM4good projects, futuristic technology and young inspirational role models with weekly live broadcasts.
STUDENT CENTRED PLATFORM
Our student centred platform equips learners with a personal login, enabling them to access the programme independently and capture their learning.
Steam powered challenges
Students can journey through each mission by completing STEAM powered challenges as scientists, engineers, entrepreneurs, artists, digital makers and campaigners.
Teachers have access to a dashboard with impact data including student broadcast views, participation in learning tasks and mission challenges completed.
