Paul Chisnall is Co-Founder of STEAM Education Company CreativeHUT. Paul is passionate about allowing pupils to get creative in the classroom, and strongly believes in the power of hands-on learning to engage and inspire pupils, to help instil a passion for everything STEAM related that will last right the way through education and into future careers Paul will be talking about the importance of play and enabling creativity in the classroom, to help bridge the UK’s £1.5b STEAM skills gap by inspiring both pupils and adult learners to develop confidence and aspirations in STEAM.

By using a hands-on learning approach we can encourage confidence in STEAM subjects through active involvement and collaboration. Learning through play happens through joyful, actively engaging, meaningful, iterative, and socially interactive experiences. Our goal is to develop creative, engaged, lifelong learners who thrive in a 21st century world. Creativity exists beyond the arts. It’s a set of beliefs, attitudes and abilities that manifest in all subjects, all classes and in the minds of all children…. if we allow it to.
