Event description

Description

STEAMS School is a one-day-a-week programme that aims to involve children in hands-on learning around a topic that integrates the STEAMS subject areas (science, technology, engineering, arts, maths and social sciences). During the past year topics covered were as diverse as: Marvelous Me, Sustainability, Chemistry, and The Earth. STEAMS School is recommended for students who:

  • Have an enquiring mind and a thirst for knowledge
  • Are willing to sustain concentration and effort
  • Will actively contribute to a positive learning environment

Each day of STEAMS School is broken into 3 main parts:

  • Independent Focused Learning
  • Collaborative Learning
  • Creative Learning

When does it meet, and where?

The school is held during school terms, from 9:00 am to 2:45 pm. Except Little STEAMerS

NMIT Richmond campus located on lower Queen Street in Richmond: meets on Wednesdays, Thursdays, or Fridays for STEAMS Jr. (age 7-9) and STEAMS Sr. (age 10-13) on Wednesday and Friday only.

Motueka STEAMS School is taking Term 4 off and options are in the works for Term 1.

How much does it cost?

The students come for a three week trial (which you pay for in a block) then if both family and teacher feel there is a good fit for the child in the class they continue for the rest of the term and you are billed appropriately.

Payment is by term, with a cost of $60 per day plus GST. We have a limited number of scholarships available that are awarded on a term by term basis for those with financial need. Little STEAMerS is $25 per day plus GST.

Will my child’s school mind that they miss a day per week?

You will need to inform the child’s school that he or she will be at STEAMS School one day per week. To date we have not encountered any issues around accommodating a child’s participation in STEAMS School, and many of the region’s schools are very supportive of the programme. Once enrolled, you are encouraged to inform the teacher and office staff that your child should be marked present for the day they attend STEAMS School, as they will be attending an academic school as opposed to being absent due to illness or other reasons.
