The curriculum resource modules are intended for teachers interested in integrated STEM teaching and learning approaches that engage students in collaborative learning to solve authentic, real world problems.
This module acknowledges that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples have worked scientifically for millennia and continue to contribute to contemporary science. It provides opportunities for all students to engage in respect and recognition of the world's oldest continuous living cultures. Students will understand that identities and cultures have been, and still are, a source of strength and resilience for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples against the historic and contemporary impacts of colonisation.
In this module, students learn how habitat loss affects biodiversity. Birds have been selected as a study species because they are good indicators of overall environmental health and are easy to observe.
This module focuses on the impact of technology, particularly robots, on our everyday lives. Based on the folktale The Little Red Hen, students are encouraged to create their own automated solution to help the Little Red Hen carry her wheat.
This module focuses on developing knowledge, skills, and values about waste as students consider the impact of lifestyle choices on the environment and how they can contribute to more sustainable patterns of living.
A STEM learning module should encourage learning that is student-led and teacher-facilitated, and have an open-ended problem-solving approach. Problem solving involves an intellectual struggle that provides opportunities for higher-order thinking, reasoning and creativity.
Online professional learning modules are available for teachers to encourage deeper exploration of the pedagogical principles that underpin the curriculum resource modules.
This online Professional Learning Module (PLM) is designed to support teachers as they enrich STEM teaching and learning in their classroom.
