Our Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) specialist subject offers a weekly opportunity for students to develop their skills and knowledge of these vital disciplines and capabilities.
In STEM lessons, our students explore Science concepts related to Physical Science, Earth and Space Sciences and Chemical Science through hands-on experiments and investigations.
Working with technologies and developing systems thinking and coding skills are a feature of STEM each year. Right from Prep, students are engaged in programming robots and writing code algorithms to solve different design challenges.
We also focus on engaging with design challenges; generating ideas, selecting and connecting different materials, applying knowledge of physical science and materials, testing and modifying to create products and solutions.
STEM not only develops skills and knowledge in Science, Design and Technology, but also provides explicit opportunities to develop students’ thinking and collaboration capabilities.
