Sample STEM activities and units of work
At Hughes, we recognise the importance for developing key skills and understanding developed by students through working scientifically, technologically, creatively and mathematically.
The following STEM resource clearly demonstrates how we effectively integrate these learning processes, as part of our classroom integrated units of inquiry and specialist technology lessons.

At the core of this learning opportunity is our students actively engagement with their local community to provide a real-world context with learning. Students are encouraged to make connections between content taught in class, alongside expert knowledge offered by community organisations, such as the Ian Potter Foundation Technology Learning Centre

Full STEAMM ahead at Hughes Primary School
We’ve touched on STEM a couple of times in this blog, and we know that ACT public schools are investigating all the different ways that STEM learning can be applied to them.
At Hughes Primary, STEM has been a core part of the curriculum since 2014, when JASON learning was introduced to the students in year 5 and 6. The JASON curriculum aligns with the Australian Curriculum and provides comprehensive materials and activities to support the teaching of STEM subjects.
