Primary STEAM Week - Bangkok Prep

Primary STEAM Week

This year’s Primary STEAM week was based around the theme of ‘Engineering around the World’. Students learned about the role of engineers, were introduced to a diverse range of famous engineers and how engineering has helped change the world. The students designed and made structures based on engineering projects from different parts of the world.

We were very fortunate to have a wonderful parent presentation on drilling engineering in Thailand by Tact and Aood Pochan. The students thoroughly enjoyed this and asked many interesting questions!
