Kadimah School is introducing S.T.E.A.M in 2017 as a unique approach to the New Zealand inquiry-based Curriculum. By integrating science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics (S.T.E.A.M) into our Curriculum, Kadimah strives to inspire students to be creative critical thinkers and flexible problem solvers, to explore different ideas, to recognize setbacks in learning as opportunities for discovery and to effectively communicate and work with others.

Through this approach, students are building the foundation for an unknown future where innovative thinking and collaborative problem-solving will widen their choices and chances for fulfilling future careers.

Thanks to the Raye Freedman Trust, in 2016 Kadimah launched the Raye Freedman Vex Robotics Programme as the initial step towards a fully customized STEAM curriculum that seamlessly works alongside the New Zealand Curriculum and our Special Jewish Character. Kadimah is enormously grateful to the Raye Freedman Trust for their continued support in 2017.
