Learning Journey 2017 – STEAM Challenges

Throughout 2017, students will participate in STEAM activities. STEAM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics. The goal of STEAM is to provide students with real-world problem solving opportunities. STEAM allows students to think outside the box with project-based learning. The children will be working on a number of exciting STEAM projects in 2017. Students will learn to Design, Plan, Build, Observe, Communicate and Reflect and working in teams. All these are 21st century skills, important for our current society. At the end of term 1, the school community will be invited to view our projects during our Learning Journey: STEAM Challenges.
