As part of the 50th anniversary of AIS, we are proud to launch the AIS Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Vision. It is our ambition to create a STEM Centre of Excellence here at AIS.

STEM AT AIS
We believe that STEM demands special attention; STEM skills have rapidly become a requirement in every walk of life, in every job and economic activity. We have an obligation to secure our students’ futures and to encourage and support those considering a STEM career, as well as students who have other interests, but require literacy in STEM to pursue their passions.
Solving complex real-life problems, identifying social and scientific challenges and being able to communicate about them requires a deep understanding of STEM.
As part of the STEM vision, AIS will upgrade and redesign its current STEM facilities in the 400 building to increase functionality and create additional hands-on collaborative spaces, including a Fab-Lab, material & digital workshops, robotics and IT spaces. The new area will be a dedicated interdisciplinary and experiential learning STEM space - STEMzone.
AIS seeks assistance with financing for the STEMzone construction. The fundraising budget target is set at € 1.5 million. As of June 2018, 69% of the target has been secured, an outstanding achievement and a testimony to the level of support for the school and this project.
STEM IN ACTION
While we continue to search for ways to improve our STEM offerings, we would like to single out some exciting examples that are currently taking place in our classrooms.
