Students get access to top tech innovators online


As of this week students can access innovative talks online via Steam School thanks to a new partnership between the school and The Learning Partnership.

Steam School hosts a weekly live broadcast with innovators from the world of science, tech & digital media for #TALKTECHTHURSDAYS. From 19th July 2018, these will be available to schools via the international STEM social learning platform

Launched at the beginning of January 2018, Steam School has introduced schools to a wide variety of STEAM role models. These include US-based Astronaut Abby, Craig Fenton, director for strategy and operations at Google UK & Ireland, Pepper the Companion Robot and Hannah Anderson, co-founder of Social Chain.

“Steam School is an exciting and innovative programme, using the power of technology to introduce global STEAM innovators to schools on a weekly basis,” said Steam School founder Jade Parkinson-Hill.

“The team at The Learning Partnership have developed a portfolio of internationally praised STEM programmes and I am excited to offer Steam School to more schools in the UK and beyond.”

The Learning Partnership international development director Gary Jennings said: “The Learning Partnership is extremely pleased to be partnering with Steam School.

“The social learning platform delivers tangible value to all those engaged with STEM and education.

“Jade and the Steam School aligns perfectly with our philosophy of bringing ground-breaking edtech resources to our global network with our intent to continually inspire learners on STEM career pathways, drive STEM subject development and the most important factor – continually improving educational outcomes for students globally and locally.”
