Creative STEM Partnerships

Kirsty Costa
Zoos Victoria

In this video

There is important learning value in forming partnerships with relevant organisations beyond the school, with this value extending into all aspects of STEM education. Partners like Zoos Victoria that exemplify "real world" STEM contexts provide varied contexts and expertise that are not part of normal school daily resources. In this video, Kirsty discusses the unique opportunities that can exist for students and teachers by connecting with external organisations.

Points for discussion

  • What rich learning opportunities could partnering with an external organisation such as Zoos Victoria offer your students?
  • What other external organisations could you partner with to enhance your STEM curriculum?
  • Does your school have any existing partnerships that could be leveraged to create more engaging and authentic STEM projects?
