Why is the E so important?

Engineering offers a tangible link between the STM components and their applications. Implementing engineering practices as part of a teaching and learning program offers teachers the opportunity to explore new exciting and engaging activities and students a new way to solve problems.

This workshop will focus on what this might look like in a classroom. Teachers will explore the engineering design process through prepared exemplar challenges. The tasks and resources aim to give teachers the experience and support they need to plan and deliver STEM focussed lessons that highlight the design thinking required in engineering.

STEM in the Early Years (Engineering Focus)

Date: Friday 10th May 2019

Time: 9.00am to 3.00pm

Venue: Education Development Centre, Milner Street, Hindmarsh

Bookings close: 07/05/2019

Event Pricing:

Type Earlybird price Regular price

SASTA Student Member (1 Day)n/a$50.00

Who should attend? Teachers of early years (R-2)

The workshop will focus on building capacity around planning and delivering STEM focussed learning experiences for Early Years (R-2) classrooms.  Science will be the context of the learning and the Engineering Design Process will be the mechanism.  Educators will have the opportunity to deepen their understanding of science concepts through hands-on exploration.  They will also employ elements of the engineering design process to apply this learning to a real-world context.

Goals of the workshop:

  • To develop a common understanding of STEM education.
  • To develop conceptual understanding in science through a hands-on inquiry based approach to learning.
  • To understand the elements of, and use, the Engineering Design Process.
  • To build confidence and capacity in planning and delivering a program that uses a STEM approach to learning.

Who should attend? Teachers of primary years, up to year 6.

(Years 7 to 10 will be covered in a similar event on 14 June)

What does STEM look like in the classroom?

The goal of the workshop is to provide teachers with a simple, practical process for designing and implementing meaningful STEM challenges in the classroom. Teachers will be guided through exemplar lessons that incorporate engineering practices and design processes. They will gain an understanding of how to design lessons and tasks that allow students to apply or demonstrate their knowledge in some meaningful and relevant fashion.

This structured approach will provide teachers with a clear process and a wealth of resources for designing an effective STEM teaching and learning program.

(Although this is a stand-alone presentation, this workshop would provide an excellent follow-up for those that attended the ‘Putting the E in STEM’ workshops in Term 1.)
