Professional Development for teachers

With particular expertise in STEM, digital technologies, physics and astronomy, examples of professional learning topics include:

  • Robotics and coding
  • STEM projects and innovation
  • Makerspaces, tinkering and creative thinking
  • Electricity and magnetism
  • Astronomy and Space Sciences

The Scienceworks education team can support professional learning tailored to school and curriculum needs for all year levels from kindergarten to tertiary. A variety of professional learning formats can be arranged. We can incorporate staff-led workshops, problem-based challenges, project design and support, teacher and student co-learning models, and exhibition explorations.

For individual teacher professional learning registration, see our scheduled workshop sessions below and partner offerings.

Early years STEM

We are offering free online sessions providing teachers with resources to create opportunities for STEM experiences at Kindergarten.

Participants at the event - from a series of images captured at WeSTEM: Design Sprint. Held in the Pumping Station, teams of five students and a teacher from different schools participated in a day-long design challenge. The session was run with speakers in the morning, time to learn the prototyping technology, and design sections; culminating in presentations at the end.
