With one of the Western Australian Department of Education’s focuses being on the STEM learning areas (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics), STEM is one of the priority areas at Leinster Community School.
The Scitech programme is used, amongst others, to help increase students’ curiosity and willingness to explore in science, ask questions about and speculate on the changing world in which they live. Students will be provided with the opportunity to learn to investigate, understand and communicate about the nature of living things, of the Earth and its place in the cosmos, and of the physical and chemical processes that explain the behaviour of all material things.
Students will continue to develop their ability to solve problems and make informed, evidence-based decisions on investigations and through the three science strands of Science Inquiry Skills, Science Understandings and Science as a Human Endeavour.
STEM Club welcomes all who wish to participate in a lunchtime activity once a week. This is open to all students from Year 1 to 6 and will involve both structured and unstructured learning activities. STEM Club gives students the opportunity to follow their own interests as well as engage in a range of topics across the STEM learning areas.
