STEM

STEM education is the learning of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics in an interdisciplinary or integrated approach. Students gain and apply knowledge to deepen their understanding and develop creative and critical thinking skills within an authentic hands-on context.

The Elizabeth South Primary STEM program aims to ensure all students, regardless of background, culture, or disability, have real opportunities to access hands-on learning experiences in Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics and also making skills. The program serves to inspire students to want to have the skills to put their ideas into practice using real-world problem solving, design, improvisation, resourcefulness, and entrepreneurialism to make the best use of tools and materials available.

Hands-on STEM Education is recognised across the world as an essential part of every child’s education for the future. This is even more so for those less privileged students if they are to have a better chance in life.

Some of the student activities included:

Hands-on STEM activities are organised by Teachers with the support of our STEM Coordinator Rob Hart within each classroom from reception to year 7, including junior primary and primary special classes. This also includes special intervention groups for students who might benefit from a range of interesting/alternative hands-on STEM activities in small groups. Our STEM Coordinator works closely with each teacher to ensure these activities are linked to the Australian curriculum and the students’ own personal learning plans.
