Stepping into STEM Middle Years
These dynamic resources provide guided lessons to integrate project-based learning into your science, technology, engineering and maths curricula. Each unit provides background information for teachers and students and moves from teacher-directed activities towards more open-ended activities. The culminating activity in each unit allows students to design their own unique "invention" or conduct an experiment of their own creation. Students will be challenged to work collaboratively, using a process that helps them "step into STEM" with greater competence and confidence. In Stepping into STEM: Middle Years, Years 5-8 students will design and build kites, learn about static electricity, build multi-level structures and use chemistry principles to fuel a rocket! Using the Design Process just like adult engineers and scientists, late-primary and early-secondary students will find these STEM units engaging and informative.
