ABC Splash recently hosted a live chat with ICT integrator Ian Fairhurst. He talked about the importance of STEM in Primary Schools and then answered the questions posted during the event.
The key takeaway was that of identifying and maximising student passion and creativity, and that facilitating real world skills in learning activities is essential when teaching Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) to primary students.
