What You’ll Learn

As Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics are integrated together in the course syllabus, students will develop informed values and attitudes with regards to how each discipline contributes to the biological, technological and physical world. Students will learn about the dependent relationship between each discipline, and about how the four disciplines influence society when combined. Through this study, students develop their language skills and knowledge by constantly working, negotiating and planning in English and by studying and using subject-specific language.

How You’ll Learn: Time to Shine

Each STEM project will ask students in groups to research, evaluate, design and develop a scientific or technological idea or thesis. As the culmination of each project, students will be asked to prepare a presentation and demonstration of their scientific findings and technological design. By asking students to take part in such research and development tasks that culminate in presentations, we will not only build our students’ knowledge of STEM subjects, but their English language skills as well.
