Summer Steam Academy details released

Details of the Department of Education's Steam Academy summer programme have been released.

The Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths Academy project, for P5 and senior school students, is a joint partnership with Great 4 Learning and Ah! Tempo, a choir and performing arts programme.

Programmes being offered include a gaming academy for students interested in learning about video game production.

This course will be offered for one week, from July 11 to 15. A performing arts course will run from July 4 to 26.

Great 4 Learning is hosted by information technology teacher Darren Burchall, now teaching in Brazil, who will immerse students in the development of 21st century learning experiences that are creative, collaborative, and complete with critical thinking.

Students will engage daily in critical thinking, technological expertise, collaboration, bilingual communication, global awareness and entrepreneurship via a web-based platform.

This programme is for students who have been nominated by their school.

Ah! Tempo, under the leadership of music director Malinda Simmons-Jennings, and a team of local experts in the visual and performing arts, will immerse students in the multi-facets of the arts creating a musical production.

The students will experience daily instruction in dance, devising original drama, vocal styles, vocal technique, set-building, costume and prop making.

• For more information or to register, visit www.moed.bm/gate. The summer course will culminate with a Steam Student Showcase on July 26 at Ruth Seaton James Centre for Performing Arts, at 7pm. Tickets are $35.
