Integrating Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths
Kent College West Cairo has been designed to incorporate spaces for STEAM pedagogy and collaboration.
Preparing students for the future!
As the skills demanded of the workforce shift in importance, the need for memory, verbal, auditory and spatial abilities decline, reading, writing, maths, and memorisation become less important, we must begin to teach pupils how to think, not what to think.
STEAM is STEM 2.0
We create interdisciplinary links between the arts and the STEM subjects we deliver within lessons. This approach will ensure that learners can take the knowledge and understanding from different subject areas and through enquiry, discussion and critical thinking learn how to take calculated risks, problem solve, collaborate, and think creatively to generate innovative solutions to problems.
Alongside the experience within lessons, we have built a programme of clubs and activities to enrich and develop each student’s ability to think in collaboration, critically and creatively.
