In this elementary STEMinn program in Hong Kong, students explore four areas of science: life science, earth, and space science, physical science, and ETS (Engineering, Technology, and the Application of Science.) They learn the fundamentals of engineering by engaging in hands-on learning activities while drawing upon various subjects such as math, social studies, and the arts. The STEMinn program uses various cutting-edge technological learning tools in Hong Kong and provides students with design thinking education to bring their innovative ideas to life. The importance of using technology and innovation for purpose is reinforced throughout this process as the different tools seamlessly support learning outcomes across the curriculum.
Today’s students are the leaders of tomorrow. The STEMinn education program at Stamford American School, Hong Kong prepares students to excel in an ever-changing world.
Unique to Stamford American School, the STEMinn education program combines science, technology, engineering, and math and focuses on innovation to elevate students in Hong Kong into innovators ready to tackle global issues. At its core, students build a strong understanding of all areas of science and technology while learning how to design and engineer with a focus on sustainability and social responsibility. The STEMinn program is fully embedded in our curriculum, so innovation is in the DNA of a Stamford education based on our Hong Kong Campus. Through various units and hands-on projects, students gain in-demand skills such as leadership, complex problem-solving, and analytical thinking to drive success in any field.
This year’s Mission Inspire theme was “STEMinn: It’s all around”. With innovative and inspiring guest speakers and challenges, it was fantastic to see students working in teams, exploring ideas, and presenting their finished projects to teachers and students across the grades.
