Steam School LGfL Collaboration
Steam School recently got in touch to let us know about their collaboration with LGfL and how Steam School can inspire your students. Read on to find out about the platform and this summers competition for LGfL schools.
Steam School connects schools with science and tech innovators via weekly live broadcasts and accompanying mini challenges. By showcasing the stories of young innovators, discussing tech trends and scientific breakthroughs, Steam School inspires students to develop a new awareness about how rapid technological change is transforming the world in which we live. Steam School’s mission is to connect 100,000s students across the globe with STEAM innovators and to inspire them to create positive global change with science and technology.
The programme has been well received by both primary and secondary schools across the U.K. and internationally. The programme adds value to existing careers and STEM programmes, connects students to inspirational role models from all over the globe and saves teachers precious time in having to locate inspirational guests by themselves.
All schools can subscribe to Steam School with a subscription giving you access to a library of Learning Materials, including discussion points, lesson outline ideas, learning outcomes, and more – guaranteed to bring STEAM subjects to life! Click here to try a Sample Show and subscribe.
This year Steam School are collaborating with LGfL on a series of summer broadcasts showcasing a unique #behindthescences look at what it is like to work in the tech sector exploring video games and virtual reality. Alongside the broadcasts, schools are challenged to compete in the Generation Tech competition with a prize fund of £250 for a school’s STEM budget. LGfL Schools can find out more and sign up here to enter the competition and find the full calendar of broadcasts.
