STEM


STEM is an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math education.

STEM studies develop generic skills such as problem solving, critical thinking and creativity, which are used in a wide range of occupations. These skills are gained and enhanced through the study of Mathematics, Physical, Chemical and Biological Sciences, Engineering and Technology and Enterprise, subjects provided as part of Newton Moore’s Lower and Upper School curriculum.

Newton Moore Senior High School is dedicated to continually developing and/or improving programs, initiatives and strategies associated with STEM, and strives to ensure that students graduate with high level skills and competencies in the STEM disciplines. These skills will be essential to gain meaningful employment or undertake further study in STEM related occupations once graduating from school. Experts predict that 75 per cent of the fastest growing occupations will require STEM skills.

Newton Moore Senior High School is committed to:

  • Providing engaging curriculum opportunities for all students in STEM subjects.
  • Providing teachers with relevant skills, and resources to support student learning.
  • Providing challenging and rewarding extracurricular activities such as F1 in schools, Aurecon Bridge Building competition, Australian Brain Bee Challenge, CSIRO CREST awards, Big Science Competition, Kids teaching Kids conference, National Maths and Science competitions, Science and Engineering Challenge, PICSE (Primary Industries Centre for Science Education).
  • Giving students opportunities to participate in activities, events and other initiatives involving STEM.
  • Increasing retention in STEM subjects at Senior School.
  • Foster sustainable partnerships with industry, higher education institutions and community groups to enhance students learning.
