STEM Education

As a school we have begun our journey into emerging technologies within education and examined how project and inquiry based learning supports authentic learning experience for students.

Teachers have undertaken professional learning in integrated learning programming and have developed the first of many teaching and learning programs around Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics (STEM) which is directly related to the National STEM Strategy endorsed by the Australian Education Ministers on 11 December 2015.

Our efforts around project learning, inquiry learning and utilising emerging technologies started in 2016 with timetabled classes for all students in Years 7 and 8. Since then, JCBTHS has continued to develop and refine its teaching of STEM.

We now run a very popular STEM elective in Years 9 and 10 to further develop the skills and interest of out students in STEM learning.
