What is STEAM School?

Steam School is a virtual club for future inventors, engineers and digital entrepreneurs aged 9-14. It helps prepare young people for the jobs of the future – 65% of which the World Economic Forum predicts haven’t even been invented yet! It saves teachers time and helps school leaders meet Gatsby Benchmarks, as well as enriching the Steam and aspirations curriculum.

With the background of the Covid-19 pandemic and the rise in home schooling, Steam School is an ideal remote learning solution. It has been created for young people to learn more about real world science and technology innovations, without having to leave their own home. It brings a glimpse of the future into home learning while providing additional support for teachers, parents and students.

Steam School runs a programme packed with innovation, inspiration and aspiration, including:

  • 6 missions a year exploring #STEAM4GOOD projects and futuristic technology
  • Weekly live broadcasts with Steam experts, including guests from some of the world’s most exciting science and tech companies, including Instagram, Google and Fortnite as well as inspirational global tech start-ups and young and social entrepreneurs.
  • 18 Steam powered challenges including ‘hands on’ and exploratory activities which help learners to develop skills as scientists, engineers, digital makers, entrepreneurs and artists

The 2020/21 programme is already at an advanced stage, with new platform features and planned missions including ‘Mission to Mars’, ‘Robotics Rocks’ and ‘Fashion Futures’.
