STEM Term 1 Overview 2023

In STEM, students across the school will consider the question ‘How has STEM helped our community’. We will be looking at aspects of science and technology that have changed the way we live, especially in the fields of food production and material use.

The Foundation students will be looking at real life examples of Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths, and learning how they can help us in our everyday lives.

The Grade 1-2 students will be conducting experiments and working through challenges to better understand the decisions made in selecting materials, and learning about how people can change the environment they live in by planting.

The Grade 3-4 students will be looking at how science is used in making decisions about what we use and what we eat.

The Grade 5-6 students will be looking closely at how scientific knowledge is used in decision making. They will also be learning key skills for conducting fieldwork.
