Through our enriched STEAM Education, our teachers work continuously to inspire students
Student Life at BIS-Umeå
STEAM education extends beyond the classroom to embrace a wide range of extra curricular activities.These include sports, nature trips, arts and crafts and exploratory excursions.
As a STEAM School, we are dedicated to offering our students a wide-range of opportunities to allow each student to develop their skills and pursue their individual interests.
To facilitate this, we have both co-curricular and extra-curricular activities.
We make every effort to understand each individual child’s strengths and aptitude, to see how we can best address them
Community-based learning helps students acquire, practice, and apply subject matter, knowledge and skills.
BIS-Umeå is adapting courses, both during the regular school day and after school, that allow students to learn in their communities.
The aim of these courses is to more fully engage students, by harnessing their natural interest in where and how they live and by using their own community as a source of learning and action.
Teaching, Learning and Innovation at BIS-Umeå places design and computational thinking, cutting-edge robotics, coding and digital influences at the core of all learning experiences.
STEAM Clubs are a powerful and enjoyable way to engage our students with science, technology, engineering , arts and mathematics inside and outside the school.
Our interest-based activities are provided as both co-curricular and extra-curricular activities.
These activities give our students the chance to develop their skills in new and interesting fields, in addition to giving them the chance to learn through real-life experience.
We believe passionately in helping all of our students reach their full potential, which is why we have introduced the STEAM Clubs into our School.
Before and After-school activities play an important role in a student’s school life, as the social and emotional skills they often develop through these activities are linked to their interest in school.
These programmes are not mandatory but we highly encourage students to participate in them as they are areas of learning not strictly developed in the classroom but that add value to individual competency.
At BIS-Umeå we make every effort to understand each individual child’s strengths and aptitude, to see how we can best address them.
A range of specialist clubs provide enhanced guidance and training to students, helping them enhance their skills in their particular field of interest.
