STEAM is an educational approach which integrates Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics to a multi-subject program. STEAM is designed to encourage students to discuss and solve problems, improve practical skills and enhance appreciation towards collaboration.
Although The science, mathematics and art learnings in the classroom are part of STEAM, they are not part of STEAM program. STEAM program includes research project, robotics ( as both included in intra curricular or extra curricular), STEAM Expo, Maker Club, and Project-Based Learning (PBL)
- Science research project. Detailed information is provided here.
Based on educational stage, robotics learning in Semesta is divided into 2 levels:
i. Junior High School students are provided with modules from Microbit. Currently about 30 modules are available in the STEAM room / Maker’s Space.
ii. Senior High School students are using modules from Arduino. There are about 50 modules available.
All robotics learning activities are using curriculum specifically designed by our team in website edusteam.id
- STEAM Expo
Expo activity is a showcase event presenting activity results in STEAM field. The aim of the activity is to present all products which have been done by students in STEAM as to inspire other students. Aside from the exhibition, other activities held in this event is STEAM Creativity Competition for Semesta students and other schools outside Semesta.
- Maker Club
Maker club is an extra curricular unit which concentrates on designing / making something. It can be in the form of a design product made from wood, plastic or electronics, power tools and so on. The creation of the product will be delivered in a form of projects coordinated by the club’s mentor. All club activities will be done in Makerspace based on schedules managed by the club’s mentor.
- Project Based Learning
PBL is a learning method which is designed to make students learn more actively through interesting and meaningful projects. PBL can be integrated into core subjects or collaborative subjects.
