STEM Conference 2022

Program Description

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.

The Department of Education is providing free buses from central locations in Burnie and Hobart to transport participants to and from the Conference.

Program Outcomes

As a result of engaging in this program, participants will:

  • know that integrated STEM education can make a positive difference in student learning, interest and engagement
  • understand that in order to increase STEM learning outcomes, students need to be provided with both discipline-specific and integrated STEM learning opportunities
  • sample high impact strategies that can maximise student learning in STEM
  • access resources to support effective STEM teaching and learning in their schools
