Australia needs to improve its approach to science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education to underpin its prosperity, its capacity to meet national challenges and its global competitiveness.
STELR is an inquiry-based, hands-on school STEM program designed for Years 6 to 10, but it is adaptable to other levels. STELR uses relevant themes such as sustainability and car safety. STELR is interdisciplinary and problem-based, encouraging deeper learning through real-world projects. All students benefit because STELR is taught as a part of the school curriculum.
