As the numbers of students taking options in science and maths were in decline, STEM took shape – study fields defined as Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. The Arts was added to this when the scientific community began to talk about the need for skills in independent thinking, creativity and critical thinking.  


Together, these are now referred to as STEAM, which gives students tools and methods to explore new and creative ways of problem-solving, interpreting and displaying data, innovating and linking multiple fields. 

In ICS international schools, design-thinking leads the way and our international schools are equipped to prepare each student to solve problems that have not yet been imagined and to work in jobs not yet existing.

Increasingly we are incorporating technology in teaching as a tool; our STEAM methodology is an interdisciplinary, project-based foundation for learning.


In STEAM projects, our students are hands-on learners – teachers play the role of nurturing curiosity and help students to develop the skills they need to reach their own answers. 

Our students learn how to analyse and interpret data in order to make informed choices, with teachers as co-investigators to show them the way. By bringing these key subject fields together, students learn how to build bridges between ideas and realisation.

In 2019, our international school ICS Paris inaugurated its Fab Lab allowing our students access to a 3D printer and laser cutter as part of their Design & Technology course in the international middle school.  In the same year, we launched our one-to-one iPad programme from Grades 5-9.  Students use their iPads in lessons when needed, have access to digital copies of many of their books, and are able to continue and expand their learning while at home.  Additionally, all of our students have access to interactive whiteboards which are present in our classrooms from Nursery school to International Baccalaureate Diploma (IBDP).


Design Technology lessons take place in our newly-equipped Fab Lab dedicated for students from Grade 6 to Grade 9, where they can showcase their creative thinking and their ability to innovate.


CODING, Robotics, design & technology

where innovation, education, and empowerment converge to provide our students with extraordinary opportunities for growth and learning. In today's rapidly evolving world, technological literacy is not just an advantage but a necessity. Our coding, robotics, and design technology programs are designed to equip our students with the skills and mindset needed to thrive in the digital age.

Through these programs, students are introduced to the exciting world of computer programming, automation, and robotics, empowering them to explore their creativity, develop critical thinking skills, and solve real-world problem.

In our design technology programs, students embark on a journey of innovation and design thinking. They learn how to harness the power of modern tools and technologies to bring their ideas to life. From 3D printing and prototyping to graphic design and digital modeling, our students are exposed to a wide range of skills that are invaluable for personal expression and creative exploration.

In this rapidly changing world, ICS Paris is committed to providing our students with a well-rounded education that prepares them for the challenges and opportunities of the future. Our coding, robotics, and design technology programs are a cornerstone of that commitment, ensuring that our students not only keep pace with technological advancements but also become leaders in shaping the world they inherit. Welcome to a world of endless possibilities at ICS Paris, where coding, robotics, and design technology open doors to a brighter future.
