What is STEAM?
You might have heard of the term STEAM but what exactly does it mean? STEAM is an integrated approach to learning that encourages students to think more broadly in real-world context. It sparks children’s excitement by making learning enjoyable with hands-on projects, and encourages critical thinking, creativity and collaboration.
Singapore has introduced numerous STEAM elements alongside its core curriculum to nurture well-rounded innovators who are prepared for the challenges of the 21st century.
