STEAM at Rydes Hill (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics)
As a commitment to teaching the latest technologies and to start preparing our pupils for the Fourth Industrial Revolution, in 2023 we made a significant investment in ‘The Hub’, our dedicated STEAM suite. The Hub offers our pupils a modern and dynamic environment that encourages exploration, innovation and discovery. Furthermore, our dedication to teaching a STEAM curriculum is designed to ensure that our females only Prep School engage with subjects that are traditionally male, role modelling a female’s participation in these areas as a norm.
The Hub offers three innovative learning stations that boast state-of-the-art equipment including robotics 3D printing and green screen technology that encourages our pupils to develop their skills and confidence in a range of areas that aim to help ready them for the increasingly digitised world.
- The ‘Skills Lab’ allows pupils to develop their IT skills via activities such as coding, data handling and presentation development.
- The ‘Media Hub’ is dedicated to digital art, photography, video creation and animation.
- The ‘Design Pod’ encourages pupils to develop skills in CAD/CAM (Computer Assisted Design/Computer Assisted Manufacture) and website and computer game design and development.
We are incredibly excited to explore the opportunities that The Hub offers our pupils and look forward to seeing how this state-of-the-art facility contributes to the modern curriculum at Rydes Hill.
