STEM (Science -Technology - Engineering - Mathematics)

‘If you can dream it…you can make it…’

STEM is an approach to learning and development that integrates the areas of science, technology, engineering and mathematics.  At Lalor North Primary School, students develop key skills when learning in STEM including:

  • problem solving
  • creativity
  • critical analysis
  • teamwork
  • independent thinking
  • initiative
  • communication
  • digital literacy

At Lalor North Primary School we recognise the importance of learning through STEM and how it empowers our students with the skills to succeed and adapt to this changing world.  

Why is STEM important?

The global economy is changing. Current jobs are disappearing due to automation and new jobs are emerging every day as a result of technological advances.  The continual advances in technology are changing the way students learn, connect and interact every day. Skills developed by students through STEM provide them with the foundation to succeed at school and beyond.
