What is STEAM School?

Steam School is a virtual academy for future inventors and tech entrepreneurs aged 9-14 years old. We host 6 missions every year exploring real world science and futuristic technology. Learners can journey through each mission by participating in weekly broadcasts with STEAM experts and choose from 18 different challenges to complete as scientists, engineers, artists, digital makers and entrepreneurs.
Advances in space engineering mean that humans travelling to Mars is on the horizon. Join this mission to find out what challenges lie ahead, how humans will travel to Mars and what they will do when they get there.
In this mission, we will meet young entrepreneurs, global projects and small businesses who together are united in their mission to be kind to the planet and to inspire others to become eco warriors.
This generation of young people is uniquely gifted with innate tech skills and limitless creativity. During this mission we will meet young entrepreNERDs from all over the globe who are using technology and science to create their own businesses, inventions and #STEAM4good projects.
In March 2020, the world came to a standstill as the COVID 19 virus spread across the globe. In this mission, we will explore pandemic science; What is a virus? What is a vaccine? How scientists and medical professionals working together to solve this global challenge.
Fashion Futures explores how the fashion industry makes use of futuristic technology and sustainable products/manufacturing processes. We will meet designers, entrepreneurs and big brands and see ‘behind the scenes’ of their fashion future innovations.
In this mission, we will explore how robots are freeing people at home and in the workplace from completing boring and repetitive jobs. We will learn about robotic engineering, design and how to make robots more like humans.

STEAM School Club

Start your own Steam School club with a targeted group of students. Get stuck into our STEAM powered challenges and help them to build a portfolio of #futureready skills, projects and experiences. As our resources are available on demand you can host club at anytime of the day or even virtually.

Science & Technology

Steam School is increasingly used in science and technology lessons due to the current restrictions in delivering practical lessons. Inspire your students with real world science and futuristic technology! We also have created printable challenge workbooks for school that are teaching whole year groups at the same time and with limited access to ICT.

Careers & PHSE

Steam School is used in careers programmes to widen aspirations and help Careers Leaders to meet Gatsby benchmark 5. PHSE leaders also make use of our 15 minute edited broadcasts in form time slots. What a great way to start the day!
