STEM is an approach to learning and development that integrates the areas of science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Through STEM, students develop key skills including:

  • problem solving
  • creativity
  • critical analysis
  • teamwork
  • independent thinking
  • initiative
  • communication
  • digital literacy.

At Mandurah Primary School , we:

  • Provide innovative mathematics curriculum resources for primary students, focusing on inquiry-led teaching.
  • Support the introduction of computer coding across different year levels in our school leading to greater exposure to computational thinking, and, ultimately, expanding the pool of ICT-skilled workers.

Encouraging school students to study STEM subjects and showing them some of the great careers built on science, engineering, maths and technology will also help secure the nation’s future. Starting this interest at the school level will help increase the number of students taking up STEM subjects in higher education and in their careers and help keep Australia competitive internationally in these important fields.
