Learning through STEM at MSQPS - Access to 4th Industrial Revolution skills
With the 4th Industrial Revolution taking place, the school has introduced the STEM methodology in Academic Year 2020/2021. STEM is an educational approach that integrates Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics in which students learn in a practical way through experience, problem-solving, projects, and scientific research.
STEM is an educational approach that seeks to help students develop a deep scientific base to gain 21st-century skills and prepare them for the fourth industrial revolution. This approach develops logical and critical thinking skills, teamwork, and creative skills that students can use in all areas of their lives through classroom and extra-curricular learning.
