In the exploration level, students dive deeper into the various STEM fields and engage in more complex projects and experiments. They learn about the interdisciplinary nature of STEM and how different disciplines intersect. Students start developing problem-solving and critical-thinking skills as they explore real-world challenges and work collaboratively to find solutions.
Critical thinking and analytical skills
Applying scientific methods and processes
Engineering and design thinking skills
Intermediate coding and programming abilities
Enhanced mathematical problem-solving skills
STEAM Knowledge (Big Ideas):
Intermediate understanding of scientific principles and concepts
Exploration of engineering design principles and systems thinking
Intermediate mathematical concepts relevant to STEAM disciplines
Introduction to technology applications in specific fields
Conducting more complex experiments and investigations
Applying coding and programming skills to solve problems.
Developing prototypes and models using basic materials
Collaborative problem-solving and project-based learning
Developing creativity and innovative thinking
Effective communication and presentation skills
Collaboration and teamwork in more complex projects
Developing perseverance and adaptability in problem-solving
Example projects created at this level:
· Design and build a small-scale model of a sustainable house using renewable energy sources.
· Investigate the properties of different materials and create a prototype of a lightweight and durable structure.
· Develop a simple interactive game using coding languages like Scratch or Python.
After 1-2 years of preparation students are ready for STEAM Students’ Certification Procedure- Level 2- Cyprus Certification Company
The duration of the preparation depends on each students’ special cognitive characteristics.
Further engagement with science methodology: Observation to Conclusion
