STEAM Projects

Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Mathematics

At Virgen del Mar we want to anticipate the new social and professional changes. One of the points of consensus among the educational community are the four goals to be achieved in the next decade: digitalization, personalization, talent management (speed to learn and unlearn) and learning human competencies (creativity, innovation, entrepreneurship, emotional intelligence, teamwork…).

That is why we are committed to STEAM project-based education. Where important areas such as science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics are worked on.

It must be taken into account that in the next 20 years new jobs will be created, not existing today, and it is where our students trained in STEAM projects will be prepared for this new labor reality.
