What is China STEAM at MIS?
In order to enhance students’ ability to integrate multi-disciplinary knowledge, MIS has cooperated with China standardized STEAM curriculum system. The STEAM curriculum was mainly launched in cooperation with the University of California, Beijing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Southeast University, Thonburi University (Thailand) and other universities to launch the first complete K12 curriculum system in China. MIS takes the STEAM education concept as the core, adopts the Project-based Learning model to carry out classroom activities, and combines the 5I teaching method for our children from aged 3-14.
At MIS, STEAM education allows teachers to mix and match different areas of science and deliver knowledge through practice and experiments. During this process, students can master learning methods, become more creative and curious about things, develop hands-on ability and logical thinking. We believe this is more important than memorizing figures or formulas.
