STEAM


Children spend 1 hour per week in our special STEAM classroom. 

STEAM is an approach to learning and development that integrates the areas of science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics.

Through STEAM, students develop key skills including:

  • problem solving
  • creativity
  • critical analysis
  • teamwork
  • independent thinking
  • initiative
  • communication
  • digital literacy.

Why is STEAM important?

The global economy is changing. Current jobs are disappearing due to automation and new jobs are emerging every day as a result of technological advances.

The continual advances in technology are changing the way students learn, connect and interact every day. Skills developed by students through STEAM provide them with the foundation to succeed at school and beyond.

Employer demand for STEAM qualifications and skills is high, and will continue to increase in the future. Currently, 75 per cent of jobs in the fastest growing industries require workers with STEAM skills. To be competitive, the Australian workforce needs people who can adapt to a changing workplace.

STEAM empowers individuals with the skills to succeed and adapt to this changing world.
