STEM education is the learning of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics in an interdisciplinary or integrated hands-on approach. 

STEM/STEAM 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. 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/STEAM activities are coordinated by our STEM Coordinator Rob Hart who has an extensive background in technology, manufacturing and the marker community works closely with each teacher from reception to year 7, including junior primary and primary special classes. 

STEAM Engaged
STEAM Engaged (Science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics) is an enrichment program for smaller groups of students who would benefit from a positive hands-on activity to facilitate well-being. Our STEM Coordinator Rob Hart works closely with teachers to ensure these activities are linked to the Australian curriculum and the students’ own personal learning plans. This also includes Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander (ATSI) programs designed for students from our community, working closely with our specialist ASTI staff.
