Transforming Learning for Tomorrow's Leaders
STEM education refers collectively to the teaching of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. STEM is part of our everyday lives. We recognise that our students are future innovators, educators, researchers and leaders. At Corinda State School we enable learners to navigate a world of technological change and ensure our students develop 21st century skills such as collaboration, critical thinking, curiosity, creativity and problem solving.
The STEM program utilises a range of school facilities such as the iPad User Lab, STEM Lab and STEM Garden to unpack the Australian Curriculum.
The iPad Lounge is situated in C block with 28 iPads for classes to use each week. The lab is intended for 'using' technology- word processing, class assessments, edU Live.
The STEM Lab is located in the library and features 27 desktop touchscreen computers on high-rise tables to encourage collaboration and student mobility. The Lab also has three whiteboard bench workstations, 14 iPads, eight drones and multiple 3-D printers. This lab is intended for 'creating' technology.
Adjacent to the music room and PAC is the STEM Garden. Complete with an outdoor classroom, this area allows students to access STEM learning outside the scope of digital technology and provides opportunities for cross curricula learning with a design focus.
