This year we have been working with 11 other schools and Deakin University in a project around the teaching of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) in the classroom.
We have been working on building teacher capacity around STEM and building our students knowledge. We have had professional development sessions and worked with staff from Deakin University.
In the classroom we have been dedicating time to explicitly teach STEM to the students and they have been learning and making wonderful creations!
Today eight of our year 6 students had the opportunity to go to Deakin University for the 'Maker's Faire'. At Deakin they presented to other students and had the opportunity to learn from students. By all accounts they had a wonderful time. Thanks to Mrs Fisher and Mr Smith who took the students to Deakin.
