At Viewbank Primary School, we are proud to offer all of our students a comprehensive STEM Program. STEM uses an inquiry approach to integrate skills and content from the areas of Science, Technology (Design and Digital), Engineering and Maths.
During STEM lessons, students will be guided to make their own discoveries and solve problems through a range of challenges, experiments and hands on activities. Lessons will explore the main areas of Science, while applying the scientific, design and engineering processes.
STEM aims to develop key skills including problem solving, creativity, critical analysis and digital literacy. There is also a strong focus on collaborative learning, team work and communication.
Students in grades 1 – 6 will participate in fortnightly, 90 minute sessions held in our specialised STEM Room. Foundation students will participate in weekly, 45 minute sessions.
