The Saint Eunan's College STEAM Academy was founded in May 2017. With a plan to integrate stands from each of of the core subjects - Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths - in 2017/2018 we will launch our first course - The Transition Year STEAM Module.
The module will consist of two main parts - a Coding course and a Materials Technology course. Students will learn how to code in the Python programming language, they will build and program integrated systems using the Raspberry Pi ecosystem. We will explore and write code that utilises some of the best Machine Learning algorithms out there - from SciKit Learn and Google's Tensorflow.
They will gain experience with external sensors, programmable motors and general electronics. Working with Solid Works and 3D printers, students will learn how design 3D cases, enclosures and fixtures.
Combining all aspects of the module, students will build a final year project with a real world application.
