Urban STEAM Project

New Project for 2020! 

With support from John Lyon’s Charity, we are starting a new project engaging school children and families with their locality through a series of exciting STEAM projects, each one investigating an important local issue.

School children will choose a relevant topic to explore over six sessions, research it during outside visits and consulting relevant professionals. Participants will make/design their own solutions to express their views and these will be presented as physical models, artwork or digital outputs at the end of each school project.

Why STEAM? 

STEAM is an educational approach to learning using Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Maths as access points for student inquiry, dialogue and critical thinking. The end result is students who take thoughtful risks, engage in experiential learning, persist in problem solving, embrace collaboration and work through the creative process. These are the innovators, educators, leaders and learners of the 21st Century! 

Creative, Communicative, Collaborative

We started working with some key worker children at Wormholt Primary during the Eastern holidays.

During a couple of visits, children had the chance to make light pictures, paper planes, flags and chalk pictures as you can see in the pictures below.
