STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics) 

STEM education is the learning of science, technology, engineering and mathematics using an integrated approach. Students gain and apply knowledge, deepen their understanding and develop creative and critical thinking skills using real life experiences. 

These experiences include inquiry and project-based learning and focus on developing working mathematically, working scientifically and working technologically areas of the curriculum through the design process. Teachers and students use design thinking methods to develop problems and find solutions. Students are given a voice in heir learning and co-construct the process with their peers and teachers. 

At Fr John Therry we have a range of resources to support STEM education and provide students with contemporary tools to engage in their learning. These resources include a range of robotic devices, the use of web based interfaces and programs, 3D printers and hands on materials to build and construct real solutions to real life problems and challenges.
