What is STEAM? Science Technology Arts and Mathematics. What are the key elements of a STEAM approach? Form and functional design in a real world problem solving context.
If you are looking for ways to engage your students in challenging real world problem solving that incorporates design and testing regimes in an integrated cross-curricular approach, then this workshop is for you.
The workshop challenges participants to design and test a device to prevent the fracturing of an egg when dropped.
Taking a STEAM approach to solving the problem will involve considering form (Arts) and functional (Engineering) design as well as drawing on principles of Science (Science) supported by data (Mathematics) to provide a solution (Technology).
Don’t worry about the mess! We will clean it up if your design doesn’t quite “work”. If you are worried about the mess then we will show you ways to avoid it altogether.
