Addressing multiple STEM learning goals together in integrated, cross curriculum projects.
The goal of this joint Intuyu-CLWB workshop is to show how subjects and topics form across the curriculum can be integrated into highly engaging and impactful projects.
The workshop will focus on different types of integrated STEM projects. for example, we’ll explore ZEP Island*, an educational game based on building a model sustainable community for “ZEPs” – ‘Zero Emissions People’. The game is an open-ended design challenge, and offers a flexible ‘container’ for a wide range of learning experiences. ZEP Island* covers Biology, Physics, Chemistry, Maths, Digital Technologies, and Design Technologies form upper Primary and Middle School to Secondary.
In the workshop we will also explore “Extreme Measures”, a set of proctical activities around measurement – from the smallest to the biggest imaginable quantities.
KEY ACTIVITIES INCLUDE
- Using Design thinking to solve STEM problems
- Building solutions that include electronics, sensors and coding
- Fun measuring activities – e.g., how can you ‘quantify your school’?
Being held in QLD, VIC and WA, March 2018 the workshop is for secondary and upper primary teachers and senior leaders, especially those who’s responsibilities include STEM.
Expressions of interest being taken now either via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or complete the form on this page.
