The STEM Teacher Enrichment Academy – Primary Program aims to provide teachers with knowledge, skills, resources and support to make real change in their classroom teaching. It inspires teachers to pursue their interests in science, mathematics and information technology, and to pass on that inspiration to their students.

In particular, the Academy will:

  • introduce and support exciting and effective approaches to learning, enhance teachers’ knowledge of content and approaches to teaching integrated science, mathematics, and technology in Years 3-6 of the Australian Curriculum for NSW;
  • develop a community of practice for participating STEM teachers, with ongoing support and engagement through mentoring, online forums, newsletters, seminars and events;
  • develop teachers’ awareness of relevant STEM-related applications to society and career pathways.
