STEAM Education

At Alpha Core STEAM will be an engaging interdisciplinary approach that integrates the areas of science, technology, entrepreneurship, arts and mathematics. Unlike traditional teaching models where these subjects are taught independently, STEAM will support our students’ natural curiosity and creativity, and helps them understand how each discipline is connected and related in the real world.

Our student-centered approach ensures that teamwork and communication will be a major focus in STEAM activities. Our students in Secondary School, will have the freedom to think critically, creatively, and innovatively as we challenge them to find solutions to problems. Even if they fail the first time, they are inspired to try again in a safe and supportive learning environment.

We have introduced a concept of Alpha Digital, which will include our STEAM makerspaces. These are spaces that encourage the sharing of resources and knowledge and learning through hands-on exploration. Our makerspaces are part lab, part shop, part conference room, and are designed to foster a culture of teamwork, collaboration and design thinking. In these spaces, our students will build and work on projects together, using equipment that is both traditional (wood working machinery and sewing machines) and cutting edge (makerbot 3D printers, GCC laser engravers and cutting machines and newspaper styxx rolling machines).
