Overview: STEM refers to Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. STEM education enhances student learning experiences through engaging curriculum that may include integration, inquiry and problem-based learning. The Integrated STEM Project involves 28 secondary schools across NSW, including metropolitan and rural and remote schools. In each school project, science, technology and mathematics teachers are collaborating to produce a STEM unit of work developed to best meet the learning needs of their students. Participants will be presented with case studies of schools in the Integrated STEM Project as models of integration. Participants will engage in project based learning and inquiry based learning as pedagogical vehicles to engage students in STEM education which is authentic and academically rigorous.
