Formerly known as “This is Rocket Science”, our iSTEAM Workshops are designed to enrich students who are academically advanced in a variety of cross-curricular areas: Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Maths. Our courses are guaranteed to inspire and get the creative juices flowing through our hands-on and fun workshops. Our first year has been a phenomenal success – so-much-so that we have had to expand the course to cater for students from Year 6 to Year 13.
When we put together our STEAM workshops we work closely with selected schools. As a result, you can rest assured that the content will reflect the current curriculum. What students see is how the classroom input and textbook material can suddenly and magically come to life when they have to apply it in very real and practical ways. They will have to use all their problem-solving skills, think laterally and creatively in order to meet the challenges that they will face. The practical sessions are complemented by lectures from engineers and scientists working in the industry.
Balancing the practical and the theoretical in this way ensures that deep-learning takes place.The skills, can-do attitude and practical experience that our workshops embed are just the kinds of things top universities are looking for.
Join an iSTEAM Workshop today and pave the way for a successful Science and Technology career tomorrow.
