With a mission of enhancing the level of STEAM education in Bangladesh, NICE School offers year long integrated programs for schools across the nation. Each program includes 48 classes for an academic year, along with assessments.
STEAM is an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics. A holistic teaching approach by integrating these disciplines facilitates an in-depth understanding and opens myriad of opportunities for the students. To achieve this, we offer a blended teaching methodology that involves educational kits & robotic systems, along with educational videos and PPTs. The improvements in the results of the students testify the effectiveness of these programs.
School curriculum-based programs
Each program we offer matches the curriculum of the grade we are teaching in. The students are able to not only clear their academic concepts but also enhance the interest related to several aspects of the STEAM. We also keep in mind the learning ability of the age group for which a program is being designed.
An immersive-learning experience
The use of educational kits and robotic systems let the students experience the concepts rather than just reading about them. Some kits we utilize include Lego EV3 Mind storms, Beebot, and Lego Simple Machines set. When a textbook topic comes to life, it gets ingrained in the minds of the children forever. The use of PowerPoint presentations and educational videos further enhance the learning experience.
At the end of each year, the students are assessed to track their performance. Each student receives a comprehensive progress report with several evaluation parameters, such as critical thinking, creative thinking, problem-solving, and self-awareness.
Workbook for students
For each grade, we have a specially designed workbook that the students use to record their learning. The concepts of each chapter are present in an easily readable manner that the students can refer to while reading.
Learning is not just limited to topics present in the school curriculum. The programs instill traits like logical thinking, teamwork, leadership, imagination, and effective communication.
The learning does not end when a class concludes. We give the students an additional task that they can perform when in their home or school. It’s like the whole surrounding becomes a repository of learning. These and numerous other features have made us one of the most reliable STEAM education solution providers in Bangladesh. Here’s the grade-wise breakdown of the curriculum programs we offer in the educational institutions.
Primary level Program
For the students from class 1st to class 3rd, we
utilize Vehicles Set, Space & Airport Set and Simple & Powered
Machines Set to make the learning fun. This brick sparks the curiosity
and imagination of the kids. Using such kits ensure the students soak
the new information like a sponge. Robotic cars introduce the kids to
the world of programming.
These kits are utilized to teach:
- Children are getting playing elements which teach them the concept of vehicles and their construction
- Teach them the concept of Simple & Powered Machines Set and trying to build them
- Children are getting playing elements which teach them the concept of cartoon making coding
Middle Level Program
The students from class 4 to class 9 are
introduced to crucial concepts of science and mathematics like force and
motion. The working models using kits like Scratch2.0 and WeDo 2.0
Science with Scratch simplify the learning process. The terminology used
is simplified to avoid any hurdle while understanding.
The students learn about:
- Both simple and complex machines
- Science concepts like energy, force, motion, weight & balance
- Measurement and calibration while performing experiments
- Advanced programming concepts
Senior Level Program
As the topics become complex in senior level
classes (10 to 12+), we deploy robotic kits so that learning becomes a
piece of cake. The emotional and intellectual appeal these kits offer
makes them the most effective educational tool. The working models using
kits like Lego mind storm EV3.
The senior level programs help acquire knowledge of:
- Types and law of forces
- Trigonometric concepts
- Concepts like linear and circular motion
- Working and engineering applications of pulleys and pulley systems

Participating Standard one-three
It is a two-stage competition organized to encourage physical, creative, and cognitive development of the participating students. In the preliminary stage, the students from different schools of a city’s specific region participate. The second stage is a national event in which the winners of the first stage compete. As a part of this competition, the students need to use kits like Lego to solve the challenge. It also involves building of models that solve real-life challenges. The prizes include cash rewards, certificates, and trophies, along with participation certificate for each student.
Participating Standard four–nine
is an integrated event that involves STEAM-based competitions, along
with the workshops to teach the cutting-edge technologies in demand. The
participating teams build tech projects from scratch in a span of few
hours to showcase their STEAM and problem-solving skills. This event is
also a platform to assess the knack for hands-on learning and
programming skills. The challenges and workshops revolve around 21st
Century skills, such as automation, robotics, mechatronics and
Benefits of participating in STEAM and robotics competitions:
- Encourages the students to understand STEAM concepts and their applications
- The students become adept problem solvers
- Competitive spirit is instilled
- Prizes and certificates boost the morale
- Innovative mindset is developed
- The fear of entrance examinations is minimized
- The students develop interpersonal skills
We also prepare the students for several national and international-level competitions like First Lego League and RoboCup.
Through our STEAM and robotics workshops in different schools of Bangladesh, we intend to offer various skills in a span of ten days or less. The use of educational robotic systems, electronic kits, and educational LEGO kits ensures experiential learning without any scope of confusion. Various individuals also attend our one-day or three-day STEAM and robotics workshops to learn the basics of a particular topic.
The teachers can attend our workshop to reinforce their concepts of Science and Mathematics. This empowers them to offer the classes in an easier and more confident manner. The teachers can ask as many questions as they want related to the educational kits or the concepts being taught.
The students can have an in-depth understanding of the topics in their curriculum through hands-on training offered in the workshops. Through these workshops, they can learn about the concepts of Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, Biology, and other advanced topics.
For Hobbyists and Tinkerers
The tinkerers and hobbyists who want to learn the ins and outs of electronics systems, microcontrollers and robots can connect with us for workshops. They can also attend the workshop to explore all the possibilities related to a particular electronics system they are working on. We offer workshops on LEGO EV3 kit, and several robotic systems.
