MOUNT ANNAN CHRISTIAN COLLEGE
Among the innovations Mount Annan Christian College has introduced in recent times is STEM-ed, a project-based learning approach for all Stage 4 students to learn about science, technology and maths. Students don’t attend regular maths, science or technology classes. Instead, for 24 lessons per fortnight, they engage in solving numerous challenges, from feeding the malnourished to living off renewable energy. The STEM-ed project has seen students’ engagement in STEM heightened, as well as students developing a sense of inquiry that is deep and meaningful, and the promotion of abilities and attitudes reflective of lifelong learners.
