Our Academic Approach
STEM + Arts is the core of our Academic Programming at Fulford Academy
What is STEM+A?
It is an integrated approach to learning which involves a cross-curricular connection between two or more standards from Science, Technology, Engineering, Math and the Arts to be taught AND assessed in and through each other. The primary focus of STEM + A is inquiry, collaboration, and project-based learning.
Since joining the BAU Global Network, Fulford Academy applies the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics + Arts, (STEM+A) approach. Our students will engage in cross-curricular studies that involve coding, robotics, mechanical design and engineering problem solving as an integral part of their learning. This unique and effective approach is applied across universities in Europe and we are leading the way in the future of education by offering it as the core of our curriculum.
This type of learning gives the student a high-level perspective on how to solve a problem by using 2 or more approaches from different areas of study, giving them an advantage to apply deeper thinking when working on projects at school, and will apply this process throughout their education career all the way into the boardroom, the science lab and beyond.
