Summary

If you were to peer into primary school classroom across Australia and New Zealand, you would be forgiven for thinking that STEM education was synonymous with coding and digital technologies. However, while these aspects are important, technology alone does not reflect the broad learning opportunities afforded by STEM.

In countering this narrow approach, STEM Education in Primary Classrooms offers a platform for research that innovates, excites and challenges the status quo. It provides educators with innovative and up-to-date research into how to meaningfully and authentically embed STEM into existing classroom practices. It incorporates accurate explanations of STEM as an integrated approach to solving real-world problems, including social issues, along with case studies and stories to bring practice to life in evidence-informed ways.

This book showcases the impact of a broader approach to STEM in the primary classroom through Australian and New Zealand-based research that will challenge current teaching practice. As such this book will be of interest to pre- and in-service primary school teachers, along with researchers and postgraduate students in the STEM education field.
