STEM support

Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) are identified as essential areas of study for Australia to maintain a high quality of life. Future prosperity depends on students studying in and across these areas in order to foster scientific and technological developments.

STEM, drawn from the four disciplines of Science (S), Technology (T), Engineering (E), and Mathematics (M) recognises the importance of this integration and its significance for Australia’s competitive future. These four disciplines are also referred to as the ‘Pillars of STEM’.

The NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) aims to enhance engagement in STEM by developing practical, hands-on teaching and learning programs and resources that allow students to integrate their knowledge from the pillar subjects.

Advice on programming integrated STEM

Students benefit from STEM by learning about innovation and further developing their problem-solving skills. An enhanced understanding of STEM and its real-world applications has the capacity to increase career opportunities for students. Integrative STEM develops in students the knowledge, understanding and skills needed to actively contribute to society and influence scientific developments through innovation, both now and in the future.

NESA has developed a guide to assist teachers developing STEM teaching programs and integrated units of work.

Sample STEM activities and units of work

The NSW Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics syllabuses recognise the importance of the key skills and understanding developed through Working Scientifically, Working Technologically and Working Mathematically. NSW syllabuses for STEM subjects and Vocational Education and Training (VET) pathways also provide many contexts for students to pursue their interests and abilities in STEM.

The following STEM resources integrate these skill sets. Integrative STEM consolidates and strengthens individual subject knowledge by enabling students to make links between content and empowering them with a deeper understanding.
