STEM projects are an exciting, efficient and engaging way of addressing subject content, the skills of project-based learning and most of the General Capabilities. Join AISWA and CEWA teachers and school leaders for a whole day iSTEM immersion. This is an opportunity for early years, primary and middle school teachers to share teaching strategies, resources and snapshots of great classroom projects. We are also going to share assessment/grading ideas. Network over morning tea and lunch (both included) and build your PLNs during activity sessions.


"STEM - Beyond the Acronym" 


Participate in a range of mini-workshops covering a wide range of equipment, resources and activities (kindly offered by vendors and teachers). Rotate through several different workshops and see what schools are using for hands-on activities. As a small sample of what's on offer, workshops will include:

  • ClassVR and Merge Cube
  • Little Scientists – Early Years iSTEM
  • KodeKLIX - STEM in Practice
  • Minecraft:EDU
  • MakeyMakey – iSTEM projects
  • Check The Clues – Logic-based problem-soving 
  • 3D printing ideas
  • Micro:bit projects



Teachers will share descriptions of successful projects in their schools. These will be short and sharp and describe the authentic STEM subject content, student learning outcomes and pedagogical highlights across a range of year levels. 

Parents and members of the public are welcome to register for this workshop during Children's Week to get some personal hands-on experience with STEM education.
