What You’ll Learn

Students will analyse real-world case studies in innovation, design and invention, and analyse how Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths is used in each. As part of our Time to Shine programme, students will also take part in creative and collaborative teamwork design projects, in which they apply STEM theories and principles into practice. Through these communicative projects, students will use their English proactively and creatively whilst developing the key 21st-century skills of critical-thinking, problem-solving and collaboration skills.

Activating what you learn

How You’ll Learn: Making English Fun

STEM projects involve designing and making innovative prototypes that could be used in real-life contemporary issues, such as in environmental protection, biomedical devices, robotics, and civil engineering. In learning through interactive project work, students will not only develop their knowledge of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics, but also develop their ability to communicate, collaborate, solve problems and take the initiative as part of a team.

Time to Shine

Each STEM project involves students collaboratively researching, designing, innovating and presenting. As the culmination of each week’s project, students will present a demonstration of their scientific findings and technological design in our Time to Shine ceremony. By asking students to take part in such research and development tasks which culminate in presentations, we will not only build our students’ knowledge of STEM subjects and 21st century skills, but their English language skills as well.
