Students entering school now will be graduating in the year 2030. Will your child have the skills needed to succeed in the 21st century? STREAM stands for Science, Technology, Research, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics. Through practical, hands-on problem solving, your child will develop skills such as curiosity, creativity, critical thinking, collaboration, problem solving, resilience and confidence that opens the gate to a bright future.


Since the '90s, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) has been a driving force behind much of education, spurred by an increasingly tech-driven society that required skilled jobs. However, a growing movement has been clamoring for STREAM, or Science, Technology, Research, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics education.

Cultivating innovation, curiosity and exploration

STREAM helps students tap into their innate “creativity, curiosity, and persistence,” and allows them to collaborate and communicate with each other in pursuit of this goal. Children also work well with working with items and materials, problem-solving, and testing designs – all of which are key elements of engineering instruction.

At DePS, we recognise that our students stand to gain significant benefits by starting on STREAM. We integrate technology education and digital literacy with our core British Curriculum. We ensure that we provide our students with a high-quality STREAM curriculum, which meaningfully integrates technology into education and promotes design process thinking and enquiry into the scientific method. This way, students get all the benefits of British Curriculum coupled with modern STREAM education.
