STEM


TERM 1 2024

 

Thomastown Primary School is embarking on implementing STEM into the specialist program. Each lesson will be 1 hour long and cover the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.

 

This term all students will be introduced to what STEM is all about and why it is so important in everyday life. Many jobs our students would like to do such as scientists, astronauts and soccer coaches all require STEM skills to succeed.

 

Prep and 1/2 will experiment with different building materials and construct objects in order to solve a problem like the Gingerbread Man needing a bridge to cross the river, or the Three Little Pigs needing a new house. They will also learn how to use our STEM equipment safely and responsibly.

 

Grade 3/4s and 5/6s will begin learning about the engineering process for designing, constructing, testing and evaluating. They will experiment with different building materials and use Makedo cardboard construction with tools to put their new engineering skills into practice.

 

Above all they will have lots of fun!
