Targeting STEM

STEM is an exciting combination of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.

The cross-disciplinary approach of STEM provides more scope for students to develop skills and strategies that encompass a range of knowledge areas and to explore more fully.

The Targeting STEM Journals provide 42 projects for students to work on independently or in groups using a range of commonly available resources. Each project contains four steps with a picture list of requirements and just enough explanation for launching students on their journeys of discovery. Each project includes a journal page with:

  • space to write about the project and sketch out ideas
  • charts to complete with data from the experiments
  • more step-by-steps to take the project further
  • interesting facts and trivia about the subject and questions to extend thinking.

All the units cover curriculum content for several subject areas, including Digital Technologies. A table with the ACARA code correlations is on the inside cover. Answers (where relevant) are in the back of the book.
