STEAM Session: Diverse and Inclusive STEAM Learning for All

18 May 2022

Join us for the next event in our FREE online ‘STEAM* Sessions’ series, ideal for teachers (Early years foundation stage (EYFS) through to post-16) and educators!

Our May STEAM Session will explore how inclusive STEAM learning opportunities, methods and environments tend to be at present. We’ll be considering how we might better recognise diversity, prioritise equality and help make STEAM more inclusive for all learners, with specific reference to under-represented groups including women/girls in STEAM, ethnic minorities and the LGBT+ community.

Joining us in conversation will be guest speakers Genevieve Bent (Assistant Principal and Founder of Young, Gifted and STEM), Sam Sharpe (PhD Candidate in Biology at Kansas State University), and Sarah Cosgriff (Inclusion in Schools Consultant for the Association for Science Education).

What are ‘STEAM Sessions’?

‘STEAM Sessions’ are a FREE series of bi-monthly events, exploring with educators how STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths) learning is able to prepare our children and young people to face future environmental and social challenges in a rapidly changing world.

Each session is a FREE live Continuing Professional Development (CPD) event, featuring conversation with expert guest speakers from national & international STEAM-linked organisations. STEAM sessions are part of the Institute of STEAM, which is a partnership between Derby Museums and Rolls-Royce.

This session will be an ‘Illuminate’ STEAM session:

Illuminate sessions shine a spotlight on a broad theme related to STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths) learning. We’ll also be hosting an ‘Investigate’ session in July, delving a little deeper into this particular STEAM-learning-related issue and considering together how it may relate to your own practice as an educator.

*STEAM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths
