Learners from Oakridge International School, Mohali were enthusiastic participants of the National MIT STEAM festival held at Visakhapatnam on 9-10 January 2020. Only Oakridge students had the opportunity to attend this event.
This festival was a platform for students from Oakridge International Schools across India to share their fervour for the STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics) approach towards learning. The festival offered an introduction to new technology and resources, guest lectures, hands-on activities and was an excellent opportunity for them to enhance 21st-century skills like collaboration and creativity.
We are glad to note that this is the first time our students would be visiting Massachusetts Institute of Technology, USA (MIT) and UNICEF, New York, thanks to the collaboration of Nord Anglia Education with these premier institutes. Our students will also travel to Switzerland in June 2020 for the Les Martinets Trekking Expedition 9. Planning is underway and we will share more about these trips in the coming days. This is just a beginning, as there are several such opportunities lined up for our students in the coming academic year.
