Learning from Meander
Meander is an almost perfect symbol of what STEAM education and thinking is all about. It is the blended problem-solving application of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math.
Harnessing Living Architecture for Education
In the near future, we will be unveiling the Meander STEAM Curriculum, developed in conjunction with local teacher participation. It will offer schools an in-class study structure and a field trip program for students in which the Meander sculpture acts as visual inspiration and a teaching tool. The program is expressly created for grade 5 and 8 students and will promote their engagement and learning of standards-based content and vital higher-level thinking skills. It is based on how systems such as the Grand River and Meander constantly change and reorganize.
Students will get to bring the science, art, writing, and oral communication skills they have acquired in their schooling and lives to the Meander field trip experience to facilitate success in their problem-solving task.
For interested teachers, we have supplied a detailed overview of the teaching curriculum for you to download and consider. Also supplied for download is an overview of the geometric fundamentals within Meander.
If you have curriculum feedback, questions or would like to book a class field trip, please email [email protected]. We’d love to get you involved. Further announcements and dates for curriculum launch will be posted here.
