Renewable Energy
(STEAM) 

Science – Technology – Engineering – Arts – Mathematics

Pacific Learners is excited to bring you the first video in a series focusing on STEAM Learning. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics)

STEAM Learning allows our children to create different perspectives on the world by using critical thinking, problem solving, communication and reflection.

At Pacific Learners, our focus is to ignite the passion of our young Pacific Learners in the areas of STEAM subjects. The first video touches on renewable energy with key Tongan translations. Renewable energy is often referred to as ‘Clean Energy’ because it comes from natural sources that constantly replenishes itself.

To improve the access to STEAM Learning, we have put together a STEAM Learning Resource page, with a collection of images and STEAM video content.
