Type: Showcase

Duration: 60 mins

Overview: PBL & STEAM- A match made in heaven! Using Project Based Learning to engage with STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths) education is not just about teaching content, but about students engaging in the process of being scientists, technological entrepreneurs, engineers, artists and mathematicians. Project Based Learning (PBL) is a framework that actively engages students in real life experiences through student directed inquiry learning with a focus on developing 21st Century Skills. This makes it a perfect match for implementing STEAM!   Come and see how students can apply STEAM through a model of discovery, creating products for a purpose and sharing with an authentic audience. No understanding or experience of PBL necessary for this session, just a keen appetite for engaging students in learning!
