Session 203

Title: Full STEAM ahead!

Presenter: Jade Leverett and Jo Lobb – Beresford Road Public School

Type: Showcase

Duration: 60 mins

Overview: STEAM is the integration of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics (STEAM). Each STEAM lesson is presented as an inquiry based challenge where students need to effectively collaborate and problem solve in order to succeed in the task. STEAM gives all students the opportunity to direct their own learning and become critical and creative thinkers. Students are able to make self-discoveries, take risks and make adjustments using testing and peer feedback to improve their designs. Problem solving, creativity and initiative are the new basic skills required for future learning and success. All of these skills are developed through using STEAM in the classroom. The facilitation of STEM led to the natural progression of STEAM. We incorporated art to engage more students. This workshop will support your implementation of STEAM in your classroom with take home handouts and lesson plans
