STEAM Programs

In today’s rapidly changing world, many industries are growing in their capacity for technological advancement and innovation. STEAM education approaches the subjects of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics in an interdisciplinary way that promotes problem-solving skills. We offer a range of programs that equip students with hands-on experience to come up with inventive solutions to real-life scenarios. Being well-versed in STEAM provides a competitive advantage in the workplace, but also instills a valuable analytical lens with which to navigate life’s challenges.

STEAM Explorers

STEAM Explorers

The Aga Khan Education Board is excited to present STEAM Explorers, a series of self-contained workshops on Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Design, and Mathematics. Topics range from emerging technologies, focusing on coding and problem solving skills using technology trends such as Artificial Intelligence, Blockchain, and Cloud Computing, all the way to architecture and the work the AKDN does at the intersection of science, engineering, architecture, and culture.

Artifical Intelligence

The objective of this workshop is to expose students to the science behind artificial intelligence while focusing on machine learning techniques. Students will Learn to create a Supervised Learning model to train the computer to make intelligent choices. Students will work in teams towards coding  CHATBOT using Python programming language.


Ages: 12-14 years

Date and Time: TBD

Cost to Participate: TBD

Baltit Fort

Have you ever wondered how castle walls are designed or why a fort is situated where it is? Follow our short workshop where we learn about how forts and castles are designed through the lens of the Baltit Fort, a historical fort in the primarily Ismaili region of Hunza, Pakistan. This fort was restored by the AKTC in the early 1990s. We will analyse the features of Baltit Fort together, and then design our own fort! 


Ages: 6-9 years
