ESTEAM is an acronym for Entrepreneurship, Science, Technology, Robotics, Engineering, Art and Maths. The countries who have focussed on ESTEAM, have produced top engineers, designers, computer scientists, creators of software and biomedical experts to name a few.
The International Cambridge curriculum for Sciences, Mathematics and Technology is considered to be one of the best in the world. MCS has increased collaboration between these subject areas as an integrated approach to ensure that we challenge our students to develop new ways of thinking and encourages our students to think more broadly about real-world problems. Our learning programme ensures that we do more critical problem-solving projects to express our students ‘creative thinking through design and fabrication. It supports our underlying philosophy at our school of: I do – I understand. MCS also includes Entrepreneurship (Business Studies & Accounting) into this teaching programme as it is abundantly clear that to flourish in the new world, an entrepreneurial spirit is vital.
At MCS, the vision for ESTEAM applies to all learning from pre-preparatory ages to school leaving since innovation, solution finding, critical and analytical thinking and entrepreneurship are key to being relevant for this fast-changing world. Every student embarks on this inspirational project-based learning programme in the pursuit of knowledge and the mastery of critical 21st century skills.
