AISWA's First STEM Expo Day

Tuesday, 21 February, 2017

In 2016, the AISWA STEM Grant provided many of our schools with the inspiration and opportunity to try new ideas for teaching STEM subjects in a rich and integrated way. This is an opportunity for interested teachers and school leaders to come and explore some of the projects that were undertaken.

Between 10 am and 2 pm, visitors are welcome to come and browse a range of 15-20 school “poster” sessions. Along with their static and interactive displays of students’ work, teachers and students have been invited to speak with visitors about their projects and the iSTEM provision in their schools.

Schools that are represented include large and small, metropolitan and regional, primary and secondary and early and later adopters of iSTEM. Schools have used different STEM subjects as springboards for their projects. The focus of posters will include topics such as conducting whole school STEM days or challenges, Hackathons, Robocup projects, girls in STEM, coding in interdisciplinary projects and growing staff capacity.

AISWA consultants in the S, T, E and M subjects will be in attendance and available to talk with visiting schools about STEM provision.

Add this event to your diaries and share the opportunity with others in your school that would benefit from the inspiration and ideas.
