Scitech is involved in a range of Education Projects throughout the year thanks to its partners and supporters.
- Alcoa Maths Enrichment Program
Thanks to: Alcoa Foundation
Scitech delivers a range of successful mathematics PL programs, especially focused on inquiry. These include the year-long Alcoa Maths Enrichment Program working with seven primary schools in the Harvey-Peel region. This program incorporates working with the parents in an information session and a family engagement event in order to provide additional information on ways to integrate maths learning into everyday life.
- Chevron Pilbara Teacher Support
Thanks to: Chevron
Scitech works closely with teachers in the Karratha region to raise the profile of STEM in their schools, and improve the capacity of local teachers to deliver exciting lessons in science, technology, engineering and maths. This multi-year program aims to increase confidence and STEM leadership amongst primary and secondary teachers.
- STEM Learning Project
Working in partnership with: ECAWA, MAWA, STAWA and Scitech
The STEM Learning Project has been established to deliver a range of innovative STEM teaching resources that take a problem based learning approach. The resources align with the Western Australian Curriculum including the General Capabilities. The resources will support teachers to teach STEM in an integrative way from Kindergarten to Year 12. The resources have been developed with input from Western Australian school teachers and will be available from the Department of Education’s portal.
- Primary Science Lab Teacher Support Program
Working in partnership with: Vekta
In support of the State Government initiative, Scitech in 2018 will deliver a series of professional development experiences tailored to building science skills, confidence and understanding in primary teachers. These intensive hands-on sessions are aimed at enhancing teacher capacity in science and STEM in participating schools, as well as schools hoping to set-up their own lab space. Teachers are provided with diverse resources, practical support and networking opportunities to enhance their capabilities, enrich science and STEM learning for their students, and break the cycle of disengagement.
If you’d like to be involved with any of these education projects in 2018, please contact us.
