Description

STEM education has become a high priority for schools due to rapid technological advancements, future economic growth and uncertain future employment prospects for current students. At the same time, declining numbers of students are taking up STEM subjects in schools; particularly girls and students from low socio-economic status and indigenous backgrounds. This situation presents a range of tensions and practical challenges which teachers and school leaders confront every day in STEM education. For example, how to bring together different STEM subjects in ways that engage diverse student interests and support meaningful learning.

In this STEMinar, you will have the opportunity to ask questions and discuss ideas and challenges when trying to enact integrated STEM education in schools and other organisations. A panel of STEM education experts will lead the discussion that aims to explore the experiences of those working in, and alongside, integrated STEM education in schools.
