S.T.E.A.M. was an area identified in need of development as a means of meeting the needs of students in a society where scientific and technological innovations have become increasingly important. Students need to develop their capability in S.T.E.A.M. to levels far beyond what was considered acceptable in the past.
S.T.E.A.M. is more than just a grouping of subject areas. It is a movement to develop the deep mathematical and scientific underpinnings students need to be competitive in the 21st-century workforce. It develops a set of thinking, reasoning, teamwork, investigative, and creative skills that students can use in all areas of their lives.
S.T.E.A.M. isn’t a standalone class – it’s a way to intentionally incorporate different subjects across an existing curriculum.
Kambalda Primary School has recently entered into a STEM Innovations Partnership with Kalgoorlie Primary School.
