Event description

Description

Please join the Murdoch School of Education for a practical seminar presented by STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) educator Oscar Naval. In this hands-on workshop, Oscar will demonstrate some fun STEM projects and activities to use in early years and primary classrooms.

Activities will include the mechanics and construction of an electric push-button, and demonstration of a coding video game animation with the ‘Raspberry Pi’. These activities can then be adpated to lesson plans for under 7’s, 7-10, and 11+ year olds. Oscar will also share his current experience of facilitating after school STE(A)M programs for students aged 7 to 11 years old, with his company GizmoCats.

Oscar will also discuss why he believes STEM education for children to be an absolute requirement of the future, analogous to the basic reading and writing skills of the past centuries. Project-based STEM learning helps the learner with collaborative thinking, logical processes thinking, and project planning by breaking down ideas into smaller processes. These skills are transferable to all areas of learning in the classroom. A STEM education makes creators, thinkers, problem solvers, doers, innovators, and inventors.
