Dive into Splash’s new STEM Education Hub

pic-1Australia’s leading education portal Splash has launched a new Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) hub, providing more than 400 STEM resources to help students develop the necessary skills to participate in Australia’s digital economy.
The Splash portal, which is used to teach more than 100,000 students every school dayi, will assist teachers seeking high quality video and interactive resources for the new Digital Technologies curriculum including coding, robotics and design solutions.
The Splash STEM Hub resources include experiments, classroom teaching ideas, and interviews with scientists, engineers and digital innovators, for Foundation/Prep to Year 10.
ABC’s Head of Digital Education, Annabel Astbury, said it’s an exciting time for STEM education in Australia.
“The Splash STEM hub provides teachers with contemporary, high quality, Australian resources to get STEM learning and conversations started in the classroom. It also features real world examples that demonstrate the exciting possibilities for careers in STEM – from an exploration into what engineers do, to satellite design tips from NASA, to video content on how drones can help save Australian endangered animals.”
Resources will be added to the hub each week including articles on teaching and learning from content collaborators such as the CSIRO, RiAus and the Australian National University.
The ABC’s Digital Network Director, Angela Clark, said: “Students graduating now need to be equipped for a workforce and society that relies on a robust digital economy. This new STEM Hub gathers innovative and interactive resources making it easy for students to be inspired by the endless possibilities that STEM has to offer.”
