Join the fun with SchoolTribe’s STEAM Club! Offered at Nishimachi International School for currently enrolled students.
SchoolTibe’s STEAM Club is science technology, engineering, arts, and math (STEAM). This program encourages critical thinking and problem solving while strengthening children’s ability to turn 2D prototypes (ideas) into 3D working models (products). Lessons in science provide an intro to experimental design and scientific methodology. While our tech classes provide an early entry into robotic manipulation and coding. Our classes are geared toward leaders of the future with an interest in product design and development, and a passion for creating, building, tinkering, and problem-solving with the use of technology in a safe and nurturing environment.
WHAT WILL I LEARN IN THIS STEAM CLASS?
SCIENCE: Explore energy’s ability to cause motion or create change.
TECHNOLOGY: Learn to code with computers and iPads using simple commands
ENGINEERING: Develop, test, and refine robotic prototypes.
ART: Design and problem solve as a creative process.
MATH: Change numeric variables to manipulate systems
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF THIS CLASS?
SchoolTribe classes foster children’s curiosity and creativity and offer kids the opportunity to explore new passions. A strong STEAM curriculum in early life lets your child be better prepared for the multi-skilled job demands of the future. Join us on a journey of endless discovery and innovation. Sign up
WHO WILL TEACH THIS CLASS?
Arooj Zaidi holds a Bachelor’s in Product and Industrial Design and is completing her postgraduate degree at Keio Media Design (KMD Hiyoshi Campus), Japan. She is currently researching tangible objects as means to positively influence children’s mathematical, physical and cognitive development.
Maike Erdmann holds a BSC in Computer Science from CvO University Oldenburg, Germany, a Ph.D. in Information Science and Technology from Osaka University, and is fluent in Japanese. She has worked in IT consulting as well as Research and Development before deciding to follow her passion for education. Maike enjoys helping kids learn how to code because it teaches them creativity, analytical thinking, and problem-solving skills in a fun way. She also has four kids of her own.
