STEM X @ Coomera Springs

​Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics
Thank you to all the parents and family members who attended the two STEM parent information sessions.
As outlined in our information sessions, our school’s STEM strategy is targeted to build capacity with our staff and students. This capacity is built in the manner in which STEM is lead, our understanding of the curriculum, implementation of school wide STEM units and methods to increase student engagement with STEM. STEM X @Coomera Springs is a vehicle to challenge our students, stretching them within the Australian Curriculum and will also increase parent engagement.

In 2020, Coomera Springs will have STEM X roll classes in Year 5 and 6, while Years 3 and 4, identified students would attend one STEM X session per week with our STEM Champion
Outside of their roll class.

In 2020, Coomera Springs will a three tiered criteria to identify 28 students in each year level from Year 3 to 4 who will be offered a position to participate in STEM X. We will begin with Tier One and move through the Tiers if necessary in order to identify students that best fit the STEM X eligibility criteria.
There is no special equipment required for STEM-X classes in 2020, the normal booklist conatins all materials each student will need. While it is not mandatory for STEM-X students to be part of the 1:1 Student iPad program, it stands to reason that if students do have their own device, they will have greater access to ICTs in the classroom.
