What do we believe in?

We believe that environmental emergencies have highlighted the need to instil an education that develops practical 21st century skills in Robotics, coding, problem solving and creativity that will help develop a sustainable future.
We believe that there is an imbalance in current education. The importance of Mathematics and English as educational tools is undeniable, however, particularly in Primary schools, there is an over emphasis is on these subjects alone. Science and specifically the practical aspects of science are being neglected.

We believe that science must incorporate art, design and aesthetics as a catalyst for inspiration.

What is the solution

Through after-school clubs and holiday workshops, STEAM Powered Education wishes to redress this imbalance,
providing opportunities for children to learn 21st century STEM and STEAM skills that will inspire and challenge their understanding of the physical and digital worlds.

Training sessions with teachers will help to build confidence in teaching STEM and STEAM activities to their students.

Additionally, we wish to press schools on the need for STEAM skills to be centre stage in the school curriculum.

So, what is STEAM?

STEAM is Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics. It is a group of subjects that naturally complement each other. It began as STEM but with STEAM there is the added aspect of ART. This is very important as it adds the design and beauty that make an invention go from good to great.
