The Department of Education Gifted and Talented Education Programme closed-out their four week summer camp with the Summer STEAM Academy showcase last evening at the Ruth Seaton James Centre.

Minister Diallo Rabain attended the performance and gave opening remarks, saying that the “programme provides a fantastic opportunity for students to immerse themselves in the science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics.”

Minister Rabain stated, “The Department of Education’s Gift and Talented Programme has for a fourth consecutive year conducted the summer STEAM academy in conjunction with AH Tempo.

“This programme provides a fantastic opportunity for students to immerse themselves in the science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics.

“As the Minister of Education and as a parent, I understand the importance of STEAM education. I am, therefore, very pleased to report that efforts by the Department of Education to introduce a STEAM curriculum has been realized, and in September we will implement Engineering Is Elementary [EiE]’ curriculum – a science component of STEAM Education, as the best fit for primary school students.

“The Engineering Is Elementary curriculum was selected because the curriculum is universally designed to meet the needs of all learners. Students move step-by-step through a goal-directed problem-solving process. This curriculum is also aligned with the Cambridge International Science Curriculum.

“When we were elected, your Government made a commitment to put our children, their education and future first. We remain steadfast in that pledge to provide resources and funding to prepare our Bermudian youth for careers today and tomorrow.”
