How to Develop a Primary STEM Program

STEM can be seen as a set of subjects and skills working together to create wonderful projects and a high level of student engagement. Learn how to develop a unit of work that integrates and maximizes all four subjects.  Paula Taylor, a long-time science teacher and  pedagogical leader in inquiry-based learning at the ACT Education Directorate’s Centre for Innovation and Learning, will provide a hands-on workshop to demonstrate how to get the most maths, science and technology learning embedded into your teaching programs.  This workshop will cover Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Earth & Space Science – essentially all of your STEM programs!

  • learn how to scaffold lessons for inquiry
  • increase the rigour of your program
  • turn activities into scientific investigations
  • strengthen your understanding of the Australian Curriculum in STEM subjects
