Description

This 2 hour hands-on workshop will provide an introductory overview of the intention and materials in the KodeKLIX® + STEM in Practice materials.

Designed specifically to facilitate student learning and support teachers with extra background knowledge, the STEM in Practice activities are collaborative, student-managed and focused on developing solutions for real-life scenarios. Students embrace engineering principles derived from applying the Engineering Design Process (the 'technology process' in the syllabus). The STEM in Practice materials encourage active designing and problem-solving.

Overview/playtime includes exploration of:

Featured equipment includes:
• curriculum links
• the curriculum-based print materials
• KodeKLIX electronics kits
• the block coding app
• some terminology
• examples of prototype design projects
• some free handouts to try with your class

A great instant solution for INTEGRATED STEM, based on PHYSICAL SCIENCE, DIGITAL TECHNOLOGIES and DESIGN & TECHNOLOGIES. Suitable for Years 4-7. Absolutely perfect for Year 6 to support Science or Year 7 to ensure all the new students are "on the same page" with basic Technologies skills and Science concepts when they first come to secondary school.

Developed through a government Industry Innovations funded collaboration between AISWA and KodeKLIX®, the program materials address a host of WA Curriculum requirements in science, technologies and maths/numeracy. Other interdisciplinary links provide further learning opportunities.The STEM in Practice materials provide teachers with everything needed to start teaching with KodeKLIX® electronics and block-based coding. The support materials include structured and open-ended activities, tips and curriculum insights for teachers and a student workbook for reflecting on concepts presented.
