STEAM Sessions: What is STEAM and Why is it Important in Education Today?

In this first STEAM Session of our FREE online series, we’re exploring the basis of what STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts & Maths) learning is all about and it’s value in education today.
We’ll be in conversation with…

Dr Jennifer Bissonnette (Rhode Island School of Design)

Samantha Cairns (Cultural Learning Alliance)

Jade Parkinson-Hill (The STEAM School)

YOU (In this interactive session, you’ll have the opportunity to pose questions to all of our speakers).

Exploring questions such as…

How might ‘STEAM’ be defined? What value does STEAM powered learning offer to education? How is STEAM being implemented in schools and other organisations? What are our hopes for the future of STEAM?

All who sign-up/attend the session will also gain access to our brand new online STEAM ‘Slack Channel’, to continue the discussion, network with other teachers/educators & share free STEAM links & resources.

Suitable as CPD for teachers (EYFS through to post-16) & other educators.

Booking essential.

This session is part of the new Museums of Making’s Institute of STEAM curriculum.

The deadline for booking onto this event has passed.
