STEM at DePS

Students entering school now will be graduating in the year 2030. Will your child have the skills needed to succeed in the 21st century? STEAM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics. Through practical, hands-on problem solving, your child will develop skills such as curiosity, creativity, critical thinking, collaboration, problem solving, resilience and confidence that opens the gate to a bright future.

Why STEAM

Since the 90s, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) has been a driving force behind much of education, spurred by an increasingly tech-driven society that required skilled jobs. However, a growing movement has been clamoring for STEAM, or Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics education.

Cultivating innovation, curiosity and exploration.

STEAM helps students tap into their innate “creativity, curiosity, and persistence,” and allows them to collaborate and communicate with each other in pursuit of this goal. Children also work well with working with items and materials, problem-solving, and testing designs – all of which are key elements of engineering instruction.

At DePS, we recognise that our students stand to gain significant benefits by starting on STEAM. We integrate technology education and digital literacy with our core British Curriculum. We ensure that we provide our students with a high-quality STEAM curriculum, which meaningfully integrates technology into education and promotes design process thinking and enquiry into the scientific method. This way, students get all the benefits of British Curriculum coupled with modern STEAM education.
