Our school believes in discipleship and mentoring whether by parent/teacher to student, student to student or teacher to teacher. Our STEAM Mentors are your connection to learning more about science, technology, engineering, art and math in your curriculum.
To help prepare our students for the future world, one in which science, technology, engineering, art, and math may become one inter-disciplinary approach to define problem-solving, we are training STEAM Mentor teachers to be leaders in STEAM to coincide with the new BC’s modernized curriculum which calls for an inquiry and project-based approach.
Each STEAM Mentor is working towards bringing your students’ passions to the fore in their learning and providing mentoring to parents, teachers, and students in their communities via blog or email. Our mentors are based around the Province to provide teacher/parent and student support in physical and virtual classes.
If you are wanting to know more about their programs feel free to email the mentors directly.
