STEAM is the acronym used for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics.
STEAM education is based on the idea of educating children in four specific subjects in an interdisciplinary and applied approach. Rather than teaching the four disciplines on a separate basis, STEAM integrates children into a more cohesive learning paradigm based on real-world applications of the subjects.
The emphasis is on fun, yet we inspire learning about concepts through dialogue and questioning.

Monday 30 March: Coding for an Eco-Friendly Future
In the opening session of the Easter Camp, children will use Python as our coding language to create a bike hire app to lease bikes to customers in a fictional city. Your child will learn the fundamentals of Python such as if statements, for and while loops before writing a code to make the future more sustainable and eco-friendlier.
Tuesday 31 March: Renewable Engineering
Renewable energy looks at the strategies taken by engineers to reduce the amount of carbon emissions from the energy industry. Children will learn about the design of wind turbines including how blade length and shape effects the amount of energy generated. Children will also construct a water wheel and construct a dam.
Wednesday 1 April: Cleaner Transport
Transport accounted for almost a quarter of carbon dioxide emissions in 2010 according to the world health organisation. In this session, your child will explore how STEAM subjects can design and create cleaner transport alternatives. Your child will construct a salt powered vehicle, a solar-powered car, a glider and more transportation-based activities.
Thursday 2 April: A Cleaner City
In this session, your child will take on the role of a city planner as they are tasked with designing a green city for the future. Children will learn about porosity and permeability as they design a permeable pavement, mimic the process of recycling, build a scale model of a roof garden and design, and construct a solar city.
Friday 3 April: The Science of Plastics
Our final session of the week looks at the science behind plastics. Plastics can take hundreds of years to decompose and governments are investing heavily in plastic alternatives. Children will learn about the molecular structure of hydrocarbons, create plastic from milk, test the strength of different plastics and many more
