Thank you parents/carers and grandparents for all your engagement with STEAM Week with your child. It has been a very positive experience to have students bring investigations/projects/creations/designs from home and to see the development and collaboration of an idea as a family task. We also thank those parents/carers who shared their occupation linked to Science, Technology, Engineering. Arts and Mathematics (STEAM).
Although STEAM Week is officially over, STEAM tasks and investigations occur in classrooms throughout the school year as part of our Australian curriculum. These are the investigations undertaken before, during and for some, post STEAM Week. These investigations link to a real-life, authentic problem/s to solve by our students.
