STEM - Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths

At Parkmore Primary School students enjoy a rich and engaging STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) program. Our students and teachers have developed a 'Maker Space' learning environment. Maker Spaces are creative, self-directed learning spaces where students can create, invent and learn. Student solve a variety of real-world problems with modern tools and technology. In the Parkmore PS Maker Space, our students can tinker, explore, discover and create new things using a variety of tools and materials. Our Maker Space is equipped with a new kiln, science experiment boxes, a work bench, tools and a range of recycled materials for project creation. Students also have access to a range of digital devices to explore technological applications:

  • Robotics - spheros, beebots and lego mindstorms
  • iPads, laptops and chromebooks
  • Laser engraver
  • Drones

At Parkmore our students explore the Science curriculum through the 'Scientific Method' of asking questions, observing, developing a hypothesis, experimenting and reporting.

We deliver our STEM curriculum during regular Maker Space sessions and stand-alone science units to provide our students with a balance to suit a range of approaches to this crucial area of study.
