STEAM is an educational approach to learning that uses the learning areas of Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics for guiding student inquiry, collaborative conversations and critical thinking.

STEAM learning applies meaningful maths, science, and technology content to solve real-world problems through hands-on learning activities and creative design.

At St Joseph's, we aim to equip our students with skills and knowledge needed to thrive in the 21st century.  STEAM learning not only helps produce tomorrow's designers and engineers; it develops innovative mindsets and the ability to problem-solve, ensuring that our students become creators of technology, not just passive consumers.

Students who participate in STEAM learning: 

  • think outside the box
  • feel safe to express innovative and creative ideas 
  • feel comfortable doing hands-on learning
  • take ownership over their learning
  • work collaboratively with others
  • understand the ways that science, maths, the arts, and technology work together
  • ​become increasingly curious about the world around them and feel empowered to change it for the better.
