At Parafield Gardens R-7 School STEM Learning is an innovative integrated approach that refers to the application of science, technology and mathematics knowledge, skills and dispositions within real-world contexts. We utilise the engineering process as a scaffold to design, construct and organise thinking whilst seeking solutions to local and global challenges.
At Parafield Gardens R-7 we place a large emphasis on the development of skills and dispositions required to work collaboratively, think creatively, analyse critically and problem solve. Through engagement, exploration and investigation we aim to foster curious, lifelong learners and forward thinkers.
