Dalton STEAM FAIR
“Deconstruct to Construct”
November 9, 2019
STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) is a well established area and focus for education, but isn’t enough. Today’s innovators are creative, working collaboratively in open workspaces, sharing ideas globally with other thinkers, and combining with each other’s STEAM talents. But a crucial step in their creative process involves inquiry, and that’s why Daltons inquiry-based curriculum takes STEAM to the next level; by integrating multiple disciplines and allowing students to grapple with non-routine problems that don’t have obvious, prescriptive responses. The theme for Daltons STEAM fair on Nov 9 was “Deconstruct to Construct” and was a huge success that brought together over 1400 guests to create, problem-solve and innovate.
The Dalton Plan
The Dalton Plan is based on Parkhurst’s strong belief that whenever children are given responsibility for their learning, they instinctively seek the best way of achieving it and execute their decisions with focus and rigor, leading to success.
Little Dalton is a progressive, bilingual kindergarten guided by The Dalton Plan. Our curriculum is specially designed and delivered by experts to combine rigour and creativity.
