PhD student adds something special
Covering topics from physics, earth science, human biology and coding, PhD student Maurice brings real-world insights to Ivanhoe East Primary School classroom learning.
A fishy tale
Combining STEM, culture and languages, Indonesian-speaking fisheries scientist Craig Procter and Indonesian teacher Ingrid Coleman have been partnered for nearly 10 years. Throughout that time, they have explored a variety of fishy topics with students at Lansdowne Crescent Primary School.
STEM learning takes flight
All-girls school Santa Maria College and Air Traffic Controller Bridget Hosking champion women in STEM and open students’ eyes to the diversity of STEM-based careers available.
Collaborating to enhance curriculum
Senior research scientist Dr David Bird and St Peters Lutheran School work together to make science engaging and accessible through experiments students can recreate with household items.
Despite their remote locations, Tempy Primary School in Victoria, and South George Town Primary School in Tasmania ensure their students have access to exciting new STEM practices through their partnerships with Research Scientist Dr Jurg Schutz, and retired pilot and training captain Steve Murray respectively.
Rocks revealing ancient volcanic activity
Rocks can reveal a lot about a region’s past. Dr Jan Marten Huizenga and a team from James Cook University spent some time showing students from The Cathedral School in Townsville what to look for.
Although rocks themselves may not be fast-paced, a geologist will assure you that does not mean the study of rocks is not exciting to the trained eye. Just ask Dr Jan Marten Huizenga from James Cook University who, through his STEM Professionals in Schools partnership with The Cathedral School Townsville, successfully engages year 9 students in a few hours of rock study at their local Pallarenda Beach.
