STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) draws on knowledge and skills of the scientific and technical disciplines to pose, ponder and solve complex, real-world problems. To be successful in STEM, children need to be skilled investigators, innovative thinkers, problem solvers and communicators, as well as have confidence in their abilities in STEM, and view STEM as personally relevant and important. In this subject students will be required to develop engaging STEM learning experiences that integrate syllabus content which is applied in project, problem or inquiry-based learning situations that are authentic and contextual. Students will also explore a strengths based approach to differentiate their practice and strategies to integrate the general capabilities such as: critical and creative thinking, information and communication technology capability and personal and social capability into STEM learning experiences. This subject is required for students who are seeking a NSW primary Science and Technology specialisation or a NSW primary Mathematics specialisation.
