At Kalinda we are very proud to have STEM as one of our specialists. Students will participate in STEM once a week and learn about the world around them through hands on exploration.
STEM stands for Science, Technology (Design and Digital), Engineering and Mathematics. The skills and knowledge learnt in STEM are important for all stages of our learning, jobs and everyday lives.
The Department of Education and Training (DET) released a document called “STEM in the Education State” which stated that there is: a greater need for STEM capabilities than ever before. Our employers are increasingly looking for workers who are creative problem solvers, innovative and critical thinkers, and able to use new technologies. (2016)
