OUR STEAM CURRICULUM
AISB’s rich and future focused curriculum nurtures children’s curiosity, creativity and problem solving skills. Our Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics (STEAM) program is infused across all aspects of our curriculum, with formal classes at the Innovation Centre commencing at the Soi 31 Campus.
At AISB, STEAM is an integrated part of our curriculum area, rather than a separate program. It is a learning framework to provide differentiated opportunities for students to better understand their world. It is an engaging and interactive way to learn as it incorporates real-life, practical connections across the curriculum.
Interdisciplinary and inquiry-based learning provides a plethora of learning experiences developing our students’ 21st Century learning skills. STEAM is a pedagogical model that provides rigorous and hands on learning opportunities through the cross curricula interplay of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics.
BALANCING DIGITAL & NON-DIGITAL TEACHING
We encourage children to focus on using digital technology to enrich and extend their learning across the curriculum, however, there is not an undue emphasis on this in the Early Years. This is increased as students get older, but we deliberately maintain a balance between the use of digital technology for teaching and learning and non-digital methods of teaching.
Our new Innovation Centre provides the facilities to make our vision for STEAM and Innovation come to life. It is equipped with excellent specialist resources to foster your child’s creativity and curiosity.
These facilities include:
A Digital Technology and Robotics Laboratory
Science, Engineering and Mathematics Laboratory and Makerspace (The Fab Lab)
A Multimedia Centre
Visual Art and Design Technology Studio
Food Technology Kitchen and Dining Space
The Innovation Hub – a place of learning and sharing.
Music and Movement Centre
