LEARN more about STEM
It is a holistic approach to education where everything comes together and works to fulfill a need. At minimum maths, literacy, physics, and chemistry are essential to a successful STEM project.
An essential part and one of the key outcomes of STEM is the opportunity of students to bring the different technologies and disciplines available through the program to bear on finding solutions and solving problems. This will be essential for training children for jobs that haven’t yet been invented.
Creativity is the heart of invention. It allows the theory and the hypothetical to be put into practice. Creativity allows children’s imagination to become a reality.
Critical, honest analysis allows us to know where we are in the present, which gives us the launch pad to where you want to go in the future.
Teamwork allows us to view the abilities of others and our own, in a clear light. Working together as a team and collaboration are a key elements of servanthood, essential for a life of service.
To build student’s initiative and confidence is at the heart of the STEM program. We want them to be inspired and brave to put forward their own creative ideas without the restriction of what they think could be expected of them.
Communication is a fundamental life skill relevant to our personal relationships, school environment and career. Communication is not only telling others what we think, it is the ability to teach others what we have learnt and its relevancy and importance to them. It is when this takes places in a STEM program that deep learning for the individual and group takes place.
Digital Literacy is critical for children to understand how info is communicated. To maximise the benefits of technology learning starts with digital literacy at it’s heart. Digital literacy gives children the tools and knowledge to make the best use of technology and resources, not being restricted by the device or the program but having a vision or picture of what can be.
“Imagination is more important than knowledge.
Knowledge is limited.
Imagination encircles the world."
