Program Description

The 2022 STEM Conference will now be online.

It will be held over four after-school sessions from Monday, June 20 to Thursday, June 23, from 3:15 pm – 4:40 pm (Term 2, week 8).

The STEM Conference will present approaches, strategies and innovative activities to engage all students in meaningful learning in Mathematics, Science, Technologies and integrated STEM education. The focus is on exposing teachers to a wide range of effective STEM teaching strategies and resources aligned with the Australian Curriculum and Department of Education’s STEM Framework with the expectation that the STEM learning of their students will be improved.

This Conference will enable teachers to:

  • to provide students with learning experiences that support their ability to apply and make connections across the STEM disciplines
  • increase opportunities for students to apply STEM knowledge to real-world problems
  • expose their students to potential career paths in STEM to encourage further interest and study in the STEM fields
  • network with colleagues and STEM industry partners in order to facilitate future collaborations

Participants will be provided with actionable strategies and ideas that they will be able to implement in their classrooms straight away.

All participants will need to be registered in order to get their unique login, whether intending to participate for one or two, three, or all four days.

You only need to enrol once.
