Computer Studies in STEAM education

STEAM is an acronym for the fields of study: science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics. Elements of art, engineering, mathematics and science are integrated into the computer studies curriculum through cross-subject collaboration. By enhancing students’ computational thinking and problem-solving ability, as well as unleashing students’ creativity through task-based activities, we develop our students to become MPS Thinkers, MPS Makers and MPS Presenters.
