Following Artswork’s call for schools to form STEAM Networks across the South East, Thanet-based Chatham and Clarendon Grammar School were selected to head up the Network for their local area. Working with three other schools, the Network was designed to function as the starting point for a collaborative arts and culture programme that worked to inject creativity into STEM subjects across multiple schools.

The physics-based theme of ‘motion’ was chosen, and staff from across the four schools created STEAM schemes of work, delivered to students during a Spring/Summer term. Support, sharing and collaborative input came from organisations including Turner Contemporary, Dreamland, and Canterbury Christ Church University, with bi-termly meetings held in the run up to a two-day STEAM event, Big Geek Festival. Thomas Brewin, Head of Design and Technology at Chatham and Clarendon, spoke to us about the programme.
