Innovators, Coders, Curious Minds Gather at St. Padre Pio CES

Parents, guardians and friends joined the students and staff of St. Padre Pio CES on May 9th to experience the thrill of STREAM. Visitors travelled around the school’s FDK to Grade 8 classrooms as part of this special event.

What is STREAM?

Today, it is critical for young learners to have the opportunity to explore all subject areas in an engaging, and authentic way. With the STREAM (Science, Technology, Religion, Engineering,  Arts, Mathematics) approach, students can apply their growing knowledge and skills to real world situations, guided by a holistic approach to learning.

Attendees and presenters, along with YCDSB Director of Education, Ab Falconi, participated in hands-on activities, watched amazing demonstrations and marveled over innovative EDIT Week projects.

Parents and guests then watched a TED Talk presentation featuring eight current, and three SPP alumni who shared their insights on the advantages of STREAM education and coding, that goes well beyond their elementary school experience. Apple Canada was also present to support this interactive event.
