STEAM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics. In the education we provide, Sampoerna Academy puts a strong emphasis on these five perspectives. As a student-centered school, we encourage students to ask thoughtful questions, discover answers, apply what they learn, and solve real-world problems through our STEAM-based learning approaches. Our unique approaches empower them to become mature and confident global citizens with a strong sense of purpose.

The STEAM Inter-School Competition 2023 is Sampoerna Academy’s very first STEAM competition that is open to public. With the theme “Build, Create, and Innovate”, the competition is divided into two rounds: the preliminary round and the final round. The final round will be held on Saturday, 18 March 2023.
