What are STEAM Workshops?
DigiWiz STEAM workshops aim to enhance young people’s critical thinking, creativity, and social skills through the use of STEAM projects. The workshops offer an insight into what is involved within STEAM fields so young people get a first-hand view of what future careers may entail. By getting this insight, it gets young people thinking about which paths they may like to take when deciding on future careers.
The workshops also aim to inspire the creative, inventive and imaginative aspects of an individual and enhance the learning experience of those who prefer to learn visually (spatial) and physical (kinesthetic) by giving them the tools to learn in a way that is more suited to them which should help them tap into their strengths.
