  4. 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.
