STEM Education for Schools

Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education is integral in preparing current students with the essential skills and knowledge for building the networked society. STEM underpins the future economy, as recognised by the Australian Government’s National Innovation and Science Agenda.

This project involves the development and evaluation of an online open-source educational resource to support the teaching and learning of STEM education at Years 9 and 10. The resource supports secondary students in the development of high-level knowledge and skills for solving real-life multi-disciplinary STEM problems. The resource will consist of a series of modules to promote development of skills and knowledge related to:

  • problem identification
  • formulation of problem solving strategies
  • identification, collection and display of data
  • interpretation, analysis and reflection
  • use of evidence in decision-making

The resource will be supported by case studies to support the implementation of the resource nationally.

This project is supported by Google Australia.
