Our school has introduced a school-based STEAM curriculum for Form 2 and 3 students. STEAM, encompassing Science, Technology, Arts, Engineering, and Mathematics, offers an interdisciplinary approach to learning.

Highlights of the Curriculum

The curriculum places a strong emphasis on hands-on practice, allowing students to merge and apply knowledge and skills from these diverse disciplines. The aim is not only to cultivate creativity, teamwork, and problem-solving abilities but also to foster their innovation and entrepreneurial spirit as required in the 21st century.

Information Literacy in STEAM Education

A critical aspect of the STEAM education is the enhancement of students' Information Literacy (IL). IL is defined as the ability to use information effectively and ethically. To develop information literate individuals, the curriculum equips students with a variety of IL skills. These include recognizing when information is needed and having the capacity to locate, evaluate, use effectively, and create new ideas from this information. Additionally, it involves adapting to the rapidly changing information landscape and maintaining ethical standards in information usage.
