STEM

Through STEM students engage creatively in real world problems, applying their understanding of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics in integrated and innovative ways.

STEM is for everyone here at St Saviour’s Primary School.

Since 2018, we have embarked on a three-year STEM project to ignite in students a passion for STEM.  We have been fortunate enough to work in partnership with STEMPUNKS (a company who facilitate programs to inspire children and adults to learn about STEM in a fun and interactive environment). 

Providing opportunities for students to build STEM capabilities throughout their schooling is a priority here at St Saviour’s Primary School.

What is STEM?

  • work together
  • think creatively and critically
  • solve problems

  • take calculated risks
  • test solutions
  • discover new ways of doing things
