Doha College STEAM Week

Doha College has, for the first time, observed STEAM week – an international initiative that invites organisations and schools around the world to celebrate careers and studies in the fields of science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics.

In DC Primary, visitors from Stem Xplorers conducted interactive experiments and also offered viewings of 360 degrees films on science and astronomy in a dome tent. Artist Bridget Dunn ran workshops with students, while the youngest students enjoyed ‘Little Engineering’ sessions. Science teachers visiting from the Secondary school conducted loud and blazing experiments using less conventional fuels, to the delight of the older primary students.

In DC Secondary, Year 9 students were privileged to have the guidance of Royal Air Force experts and the Smallpeice Trust, who assisted them with their ‘Aircraft Design Challenge’. Each student team represented a small company that designed and flew a motorised model aircraft, carrying out the role of project manager, resource manager, finance manager, marketing officer and product designer.

Ondrea McSwiggan, Enrichment and ECA coordinator at Doha College Primary, explained the significance of STEAM.

STEAM Week is one of the key enrichment events at Doha College and an educational approach to learning that uses these subjects as access points for guiding student inquiry, dialogue, and critical thinking.’

Throughout the interactive and engaging week, students developed their creative skills guided by the expertise of the secondary department, extra-curricular outside providers, local artists and businesses. It really has been an outstanding week of learning.
