Taking an integrated STEM journey in Early Childhood

Embedding the Sustainable Development Goals

A “Focus on STEM, especially in the early years” was considered imperative as a school priority this year, as stated in Directions for Schools: Focus 2019 by the Director General of the Department of Education of Western Australia. This presentation provides classroom examples of how to implement an effective and empowering STEM (Science, Technologies, Engineering and Mathematics) program in Early Childhood. The workshop will elucidate the planning, implementation and evaluation processes involved in embedding not only an early years STEM program, but a STEAM (Science, Digital and Design Technologies, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics) program.  Project results include evidence of effective and meaningful embedding of STEAM, positive stakeholder feedback, conservation links and high levels of student engagement.  Furthermore, links with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals will be addressed.  Finally, future directions for school leadership, teacher education and school relationships with other organisations will be discussed.

National Reconciliation Week (NRW) runs annually from 27 May to the 3 June. These dates mark two significant events in Australia’s Reconciliation journey, the 1967 Referendum and Mabo Day. The theme for NRW 2019 is GROUNDED IN TRUTH – Walking Together in Courage. This theme addresses the courage that it takes to engage in a process of speaking and listening to find a common ground of truth.

“At the heart of reconciliation is the relationship between the broader Australian community and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. To foster positive race relations, our relationship must be grounded in a foundation of truth.”

You can find our more about NATIONAL RECONCILIATION WEEK here: https://www.reconciliation.org.au/national-reconciliation-week.

Resources available on the NRW2019 homepage include information about the 1967 Referendum, Mabo Day, and a Time Line of Reconciliation. You can also find lists of Recommended Reading and Recommended Viewing.
