STEAM Class Content

Below you will find a selection of our STEAM curriculum, which aims at encouraging students to develop critical thinking, collaboration, planning and problem-solving techniques. Our STEAM Camp covers five projects from that curriculum. Our approach is project-based, always engaging and works to bring together several fields of study at a time.

 

In addition to the theory behind each exercise, dedicated sessions will focus on boosting hand tooling capabilities. TechShop’s STEAM room is equipped with a workstation for each student providing soldering irons, screwdrivers, vices, measurement tools, and many more. In addition to the workstations, students have access to a drill press, hand drill, scroll saw, hot glue gun, etc. under direct supervision of a teacher. Students can experience and understand scientific principles in self-conducted and exciting experiments. They will get to put their acquired knowledge into action, as they apply the theory to real products through manual DIY work.

 

Water world Discoveries - Build a Steam Boat

Water: an element that we can take for granted sometimes, as we use it for drinking, cooking, washing, watering...but do you know where the water you use actually comes from in the first place? Learn more about this everyday essential for life, from steam to floatation, with hands on experiments including building your own mini boat which we will try out in the test pool.

Up! Build a Pneumatic Lift

Humans have invented clever ways to get air to do some heavy lifting! The technical term for this is pneumatics, and in this lesson you will learn in a simple way how the air is used to do work, by building your own small pneumatic lift.

It’s Electric - Build an Electric Circuit

We’re all used to plugging in our devices these days and getting our power up to 100%. But where does that electricity come from? With "electrifying" experiments such as creating your own electric circuit and also some theory, you will learn how electricity is generated, how it gets from A to B, and what we can do with it.

Fun times! Build a Bubble Making Engine

This class offers the opportunity to experience different materials (wood, metal, plastic ...) and tools (scroll saw, thermocutter, drill press, hand drill, soldering iron and all sorts of hand tools ...). Students will learn how to build an engine with multiple rotating parts, a motor and propeller.

It's Tricky! Hot Wire Game 

Build your very own game and challenge your friends and family to test a steady hand and steady nerves. Players must guide the loop along the wire maze, but make sure you don’t let the metal loop touch the maze, or you will set off the buzzer and make the LED light-up!

The Seesaw Engine

A first introduction to the world of thermomechanics! Building a simple, easily understandable and step-by-step thermal seesaw engine, young learners will see the magic of science in action with the help of a bimetallic spring and a candle!
