“STEM is not just content - It Is A PROCESS For Solving REAL LIFE Problems”
In recent years, so much has been spoken about STEM education and its link to our everchanging and competitive workforce. With more jobs requiring a background in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM), our teachers have integrated STEM across the curriculum. By engaging our students in authentic and challenging STEM learning experiences, they are exposed to and learn a broad range of valuable skills that they can use in many career paths. These skills include collaboration, problem solving, risk taking, testing and questioning.
Real-world problems are becoming the centre of our STEM investigations at HEPS. By providing students with the opportunity to identify and solve real-world problems we can increase student engagement and help students become more driven and compassionate members of our community. Students are currently identifying and tackling authentic problems that impact them and others. These are some of the real-world problems our students are currently exploring and finding solutions for.
