Engaging Space Across a STEM Year

Course description

Engaging Space Across a STEM Year

This course will help teachers to embrace the four national STEM weeks (Science, Maths, Engineers and Space Week) with teaching approaches that develop numeracy and literacy skills in an integrated way across the curriculum for senior classes. This course will use Space as the overarching theme to approach STEM weeks in an academic year. With an emphasis on inquiry-based learning, this course will outline a strong program of activities which provide opportunities to apply skills and knowledge to real life situations scaffolded by STEM Weeks as a motivator.

Venue: CIT Blackrock Castle Observatory

Facilitator: Frances McCarthy and Niall Smith
