Science Technology Engineering Arts Mathematics (STEAM) is a term given to the quintessential skills our students need to be successful 21st century learners.
Google has estimated that students at school today will have a minimum of 8 different careers in their lifetime. Not only will our students have several different careers, they are also the first generation in history to have the opportunity to create their own careers based upon their unique skill sets. It is wildly understood that technology is a critical part of future careers, however Science, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics are often overlooked. Many future careers involve the combination of all the STEAM subjects underpinned by collaboration, communication, creativity and innovation of the individual.
At West Ryde Public School, we are embedding STEAM within every class in the school and are fostering a love of creativity, motivation, innovation and collaboration within our students.
