We are pleased to announce Aquinas College will be involved in the 2019 CASE (California Association for STEAM Education) Space School International Study Program. Through our partnerships, students have the unique opportunity to join this once in a lifetime, STEAM-based experience at NASA in the USA.
Recognising the challenges facing young students today, where the change of pace in society over the next 30 years will outpace the change we have experienced in the past five thousand years. Seventy five percent of the fastest growing occupations in New Zealand will require STEAM related skills and an expected 50% of current jobs will disappear.
By empowering students through this unique STEAM program, they will master the STEAM related skill set to prepare them for their future. Students become more focused, inquisitive to pursue the subject they are interested in through the unique access to NASA facilities, inspiring guest speakers and training programs, while learning a foundation of personal and leadership skills to apply through their school years and beyond.
This program is designed to develop leaders for the next generation, aims to inspire and ongoing interest in STEAM; empowering and preparing our students for the fastest growing and most sought-after occupations of the 21st century.
A fantastic opportunity to learn beyond the classroom in the most inspiring environment.
There is a one-hour information session about this international study program to be held on
Wednesday 20th March at the Staff Room, Aquinas College.
This is a once in a lifetime experience. I encourage you to attend this evening information session and we look forward to your attendance.
