For the 2017-18 academic year, Nottingham’s Knight Writer Project will take on a decidedly STEAM like focus. Via further integration of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math, our STEAM focus will be on providing authentic, inquiry-based learning experiences that encourage our Knights to collaborate, experiment, and create solutions to real-life problems. As we incorporate elements of Project Lead The Way, we remain dedicated to providing our Knights with an engaging, hands-on environment. Our Maker Space and ImagiLab work with our Knights and their teachers are dedicated to fostering those lifelong skills while engaging in hands-on learning.
Global and local challenges surround us. To address these challenges and move forward, we know the world needs citizens who know problem-solving strategies, think critically and creatively, communicate and collaborate with others, and persevere when something does not work the first time! We think that sounds like our Knights!
