What is STEM?

STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths. It is the combination of these four subject areas that make up the STEM curriculum. A major focus is placed on developing and refining our students' critical thinking and problem solving skills. STEM aims to equip the students with the necessary knowledge and skills that will help them thrive and be successful within our technologically advanced world.

Some of the things the students will learn about, but are not limited to are:

  • how everyday structures and objects are engineered
  • manipulating and combining materials

  • developing algorithms with and without digital technologies to find a solution
  • programming various types of robots and devices
  • understanding how computers work and its components
  • designing and programming video games
  • effective communication and collaboration within group work
