WHAT IS S.T.E.A.M.?

Science. Technology. Engineering. Art. Mathematics.

S.T.E.A.M. is a scholastic method to learn the techniques of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics. It is a way of learning that cultivates students’ critical thinking skills as they pursue their academic and personal interests. The goal of S.T.E.A.M. is to provide an educational and unrestrictive environment for students to take risks, problem-solve, collaborate, and work through the creative process.

S.T.E.A.M. adopts a holistic approach to develop students’ potential to succeed. Students are exposed to various experiential learning techniques that encourage inquiry, innovation, and reflection.
The theme of S.T.E.A.M. EXPO is Play, Innovate, Create, which reflects our philosophy and approach to learning. Learning should be fun, innovative, and creative. Moreover, the goal of learning is not only self-devlopment, but also to be able to solve the complex problems of our world.

Play

Students learn best when they are having fun. Through play, students develop the necessary motor, social, and analytical skills. In the Play section, visitors will be able to take part and play the games that our students have created. For example, the Grade 9 class has created board games for the visually impaired.

Innovate

The many challenges we face today require innovative solutions that can respond to local needs. For the Innovate section, students have built and designed products and processes that enhance the interaction between human and technology. Examples include 3D printed glasses, electricity generating wall model, and other innovations that require students to evaluate and work creatively in both the digital and non-digital environment.

Create

Thinking outside of the box is indispensable in today’s world. Looking at old problems in a new way, coming up with different approaches, and creating new products are essential for solving the challenges of the 21st century. In some sense, to be human is to create. In the Create section, our students have created different visual art exhibits including dress designs. As visitors walk through these exhibits, we encourage our visitors to reflect (and relax!) about the state of our world today.

The limited human experiences in our lives are somehow a collective inspiration to us senior artists. Throughout the years in Mingdao, we all challenged ourselves to try out different ways to express ourselves and react towards the environment we all live in.
