STEAM @ MAC OGHS
What is STEAM? In a rapidly changing world, key skills and characteristics developed through STEAM will be critical for everyone. In fact, even if you don’t want to work in the fields of science, technology, engineering, art, and math, STEAM learning will undoubtedly benefit each and every one of us from coast to coast. To understand why we have to set our sights on tomorrow.
These skills allow Muslim Canadians to engage in discovery and innovation, in groundbreaking research, or in the creation of new technologies that can impact the lives of people. These advanced skills are typically acquired through postsecondary education, Master’s, and Ph.D. programs.
“STEAM” is much more than meets the eye. It not only builds critical skills but STEAM-based learning also fosters creativity, resiliency, ‘grit’ and communication – key characteristics of innovative thinkers and problem solvers! Everyone benefits from quality STEAM-based learning.
The most successful students are involved in extracurricular activities. This involvement provides additional opportunities for students to practice communication skills. Students will also make friends, build confidence and discover a new skill.
Students at MAC OGHS should engage in clubs designated for extra-curricular and maximize their time learning in social environments. Clubs range from yearbook association, photography, DECA, MIST, and Radio/TV. Students interested in a particular topic can start their own club by speaking with the school administration.
