STEAM is the abbreviation for Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Maths. It’s an integrated approach to learning that encourages students to think more broadly about real-world problems. At Manchester Primary School STEAM lessons are provided to students for 45 minutes each week. Junior students from Foundation, Level 1 and Level 2 STEAM lessons are focused on Visual Arts. The senior students from Level 3 to Level 6 STEAM lessons have a Science focus.
Manchester Primary Schools STEAM Program provides activities that aim to promote the idea that Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math can all Work Together to assist all students in becoming Critical Thinkers, Problem Solvers and Innovators.
STEAM education at Manchester Primary School aims to develop a set of thinking, reasoning, teamwork, investigative, and creative skills that students can use in all areas of their lives.
STEAM lessons are progressive, interesting, hands on, engaging, providing opportunities for project based learning which aims to encourage curiosity. It is about learning how to think critically and evaluate information. How to apply knowledge, research and skills to problem solve.
STEAM education will help children become innovative adults with exceptional critical thinking and problem solving skills. Skills that our future generations will need in our increasingly technology driven world.
STEAM is everywhere and in everything we do, and how we live. From the natural world around us to the devices in our hands that show us the world. STEAM education builds thinkers, doers and innovators! Reflecting Manchester Primary School motto, Inspire, Engage, and Achieve.
