iSTEM is "integrated STEM". iSTEM projects are a perfect way to leverage learning through practically and conceptually exploring interdisciplinary links between Technologies, Science and Maths. Design and Technologies projects also provide an excellent springboard for engaging with both applied literacy skills and knowledge from the humanities subjects (aka STEaM). This workshop will provide a variety of examples of projects (including KodeKLIX electronics/coding projects), planning, assessment materials and opportunities for participants to familiarise themselves with the critical elements of the "engineering design process". Participants will have time to begin designing their own iSTEM activities and noting curriculum links.
