STEAM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths.
STEAM in education is the integration of these subjects to provide students with a wide skillset, which will not only prepare them for the future, but will also provide them with the skills to ‘think critically, analyse problems and be innovative in their approach to providing practical solutions.’
STEAM at TCOLC is full of exciting experiences available to all.
FIRST LEGO LEAGUE
This year, students from year 8 are taking part in the First Lego League International Tournament. The first stage of this tournament is a local event involving schools in Leicestershire. Our team will be expected to demonstrate ‘Core Values’, show their robot building skills as well as completing the robot mission. The final task is to present a 5 minute ‘Innovation Project’ on this year’s theme; ‘Replay’ – getting people to be more active.
Last year, our team, the ‘TCOLC Titans’ were winners in the ‘Innovation Project’, this year we are hoping to go one better!
