The 2020 STEM conference will bring together classroom teachers, leaders in education and businesses who are interested in sharing and exploring teaching methods, tools, resources, and related activities for implementing STEM education into our schools and communities.

This will be a high-quality professional learning opportunity for educators of Years 6–11 in

  • mathematics
  • science
  • ICT
  • design & technology.

The conference is an excellent opportunity for educators to network and exchange ideas about STEM teaching and learning.

Some workshops will address the critical importance of connecting different areas of STEM by considering ways of interrelating science and/or mathematics, while others will address activities to support teaching and learning of specific topics.
