STEAM

STEAM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths. Many of the World’s problems past, present and future have and will be solved by the applied knowledge of these disciplines.

We have two STEAM clubs:

• STEAM:extend is a club for our most gifted students. The team competes in National and Regional STEAM competitions as well as formulating and conducting their own STEAM projects.

Forthcoming projects to be announced…

• STEAM:emerge is a club which fosters a desire to be involved in the practical solutions of current problems. The club is open to all and serves as a pathway to joining our STEAM:extend team.
