Connecting Classroom Learning and the Real-World through innovative STEM programs for Australia’s students
The Australian Industry Group’s report Developing the Workforce for a Digital Future has identified that “STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) skills will be required in many of the higher-skilled jobs of the future. As technology becomes more advanced and more complex, STEM capabilities will increasingly become an entry level requirement”
We recognise the difficulties schools are facing, trying to keep up with rapidly changing technology and best preparing students for a future that is unknown.
We have developed a series of 2018 student STEM Enrichment Progams, aiming to help schools bridge the gap between classroom learning at the real world.
Real World Design Challenge – 5 Day program
The design challenge is an open-ended project that pushed students to imagine and create without boundaries and constraints. Students will learn the 5 step Stanford d.school and IDEO Design Thinking methodology through finding a solution to a real-world problem they have identified in their communities.
NSW Depth Studies – 3 Day Programs
STEM Fieldwork Programs
Inspired by recent changes to the NSW curriculum, but relevant Australia wide, we are introducing a series of three day STEM fieldwork programs across all Science subjects and modules. Expand students’ learning and engagement with STEM and world in which they live, with hands-on experiences.
Mission Discovery – 5 Day Program
What better way to motivate student to continue with STEM studies than meeting a real Astronaut! In partnership with ISSET, we are bringing a NASA Astronaut and NASA personnel to a university near you. Students spend 5 days working on science experiments with the winning experiment being carried out on board the International Space Station!
