STEAM Learning in Action
Thomas Edison once said “To invent, you need a good imagination and a pile of junk”.
At UISG, we engage and inspire our students around STEAM subjects. STEAM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math. STEAM sparks an interest and lifelong love of the arts and sciences in children from an early age. At UISG, we foster an inclusive learning environment where all students can engage and contribute. Teaching relevant, in-demand skills like critical thinking, ingenuity and teamwork prepares our students to become innovators in an ever-evolving world is paramount, not only for the future of our students but for the future of the world.
Through our transdisciplinary and collaborative approaches, STEAM is embedded in lessons from Early Years, enabling them to start to discover real-world solutions to real-world problems. The innovative and hands-on, infusion approach to teaching and learning means that as soon as students enter the Primary years, they start to develop the skills to create some phenomenal solution. This is further enhanced in our Secondary years, with higher-level questioning. By incorporating all components into a lesson, unit or project, STEAM education enhances our programme of inquiry.
