Design & Technology and STEAM

With the fast approaching inclusion of the Digital Technologies curriculum in 2018, as well as a strong national focus on producing students with appropriate skills to fulfill current and future jobs, in 2017, Churchlands Primary school introduced its own STEAM program to meet these important needs. Our vision includes making sure our students are well equipped with skills and knowledge that help them not only adapt to their future professional roles, but to thrive in their ever changing environment. At Churchlands Primary School we want to provide authentic opportunities for our students to learn and practice the core learning ideas behind the STEAM movement. Along with content knowledge in the  areas of Science, Mathematics and Technology, STEAM is designed to improve our student’s ability to think creatively and critically, collaborate effectively and apply design processes to solve ‘real-world’ problems efficiently and effectively.
