The interdisciplinary study of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics, or STEM, challenges and extends student learning through application of their understanding in real-world problem-solving contexts. With established use of Learning Technologies, Black Forest Primary School is constantly working to refine its use of STEM to increase student engagement and achievement.

Fundamental to this approach is:

  • Deep disciplinary knowledge
  • Problem-solving approach
  • Collaboration
  • Designing and engineering solutions

In the classroom, this can include the application of Design Thinking processes, prototyping of solutions, documentation of thinking, targeted feedback processes and student-led investigation.
