  1. STEM Resources

    Science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) research refers to experiments conducted to address problems in those fields that can be tested using the scientific method. The scientific method is an inquiry process used to systematically study, investigate and to provide explanations for observed phenomenon in the natural world. This method is used by STEM professionals to answer questions they have about important world problems and usually includes carefully orchestrating a situation that allows them to observe, measure and test their ideas.

  2. Authentic Learning in the Digital Age: Engaging Students Through Inquiry

    How can you create an authentic learning environment in today's standards-driven atmosphere? Larissa Pahomov outlines a framework for learning structured around five core values: inquiry, research, collaboration, presentation and reflection. The framework is a guide, not a prescription, and middle years and secondary school teachers can use it to structure whatever content and skills their current school requires. The book also includes suggestions for how to integrate technology into inquiry-based education, but the principles and approaches it describes can be applied successfully even in places without abundant technology. Authentic Learning in the Digital Age is an indispensable handbook for reinvigorating teaching and learning for a new era.

  9. Stepping into STEM

    The Stepping into STEM series is a collection of dynamic resources that 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. Each book in the Stepping into STEM series offers unique activities and opportunities for exploration.
