STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics)
- To develop students’ habit of facing tasks/problems;
- To enhance students’ ability in constructing new knowledge through previous experience;
- To manage data for accomplishing tasks;
- To build up students’ sharing attitude within and between groups.
In Junior School, we focus on cultivating students’ creativity and collaboration through hands-on projects. The contents covered from daily life science topics to simple mechanics with motors.
The school-based coding curriculum goes through grades 1 to 6, from basic coding concepts to skills of creating an app to solve daily life problems.
In the first two years of middle school, which is grades 5-6, we have intensive digital making projects by using programmable bricks and circuits that combine the skills of coding and mechanics into the solution to various tasks.
From Grade 1 to Grade 4, there are two STEAM lessons per week, while from Grade 5 to Grade 6, there are three STEAM lessons per week.
STEAM projects last for 8-10 weeks. During the lesson, students are encouraged to explore, try, observe, compare, reflect, remake, and share. Under the STEAM lesson implementation model, we divide the project into different stages. In the initial stage, the teacher sets the task and environment for students, let them try in their own way first. They are asked to show their tries and observe one another’s works, after compare and reflect stages, and students strive to improve their works by the result of reflection, then after some cycles, students share their products with the whole class as a report.
The assessment will be project-based, while the performance of students will be assessed in 3 areas:
- What has the student learned?
- How does the student apply previous/new knowledge and skills?
- How is the product made?
- How does the student apply IT knowledge in the project?
- How does the student develop the habit of dealing with tasks?
- How does the student work with others?
