Kolkata, May. 23. Along with learning numbers and facts, students be encouraged to develop Critical Thinking, Communication, Collaboration and Creativity with a scientific and entrepreneurial attitude, said Dr George Panicker, alumnus of Don Bosco School Park Circus, Kolkata, and Founder of International STEAM Research Pvt Ltd.
''The best way schools can help students become future-proof or future-ready is by helping them think by indulging in experiential learning, with a hands-on methodology and sharpening their metacognitive skills,'' says Dr Panicker.

Panicker said, ''The proven methodology to implement experiential learning is through integrated S.T.E.A.M (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) programmes.''

STEAM promotes growth and change in mental processes related to thinking, reasoning, memory and other areas of brain development acquired from a consolidation of knowledge gained through experiences.

STEAM is an environment where a learner can touch, feel, and learn by doing rather than just rote-learning. It promotes invention literacy by making things and relate them to the real world and their textbook topics and experience it. The various prototypes a learner develops in a STEAM space or lab help understand its applications and concepts relevant to the real world.
