AGPS Year of STEAM!

 

This year, we are celebrating the year of STEAM (Science technology, engineering, art and mathematics).

Our school motto is everyone is different, everyone is equal and everyone is welcome.  To recognise and celebrate this, we want to raise the aspirations of all our students to aspire to employment in the STEAM industries.  There is a lack of diverse representation in science, maths and technology but our year of STEAM seeks to promote and challenge stereotypes.

Our school understand and embrace the benefits to children and young people of having a mix of STEAM skills and the importance of a broad education that gives parity to science, technology, engineering, arts and maths subjects. We are committed to our students needing STEAM skills to reach their potential and are passionate about STEAM being essential for creating a workforce that solves the problems of the future.

There are four primary skill areas necessary for success in the 21st century:

  • Critical Thinking & Problem Solving

  • Communication

  • Collaboration

  • Creativity & Innovation
