WORKSHOP REGISTRATION FORM
ATTEND A PRESENTATION
The Museum of Applied Arts & Sciences (MAAS - Powerhouse Museum), hosts the annual Young Creators Conference (YCC). The YCC provides a window into what is really going on with STEAM inside our most creative schools.
Peter Mahony (MAAS Education & Digital Learning Manager) will describe and showcase how YCC schools are working with STEAM, plus explain how you and/or your school may participate or host your own similar event. Read more...
WHY ATTEND HANDS-ON STEAM WORKSHOPS?
Despite our best efforts, all the evidence shows that most kids go through school holding deep-rooted ideas that bear no relation to our modern understanding about the natural/physical world in which we live.
Recent research by Dr Derek Muller (University of Sydney 4) suggests that the conventional, explicit teaching of STEM (science) in NSW schools mostly perpetuates and re-enforces fundamental misconceptions about how the world works. 5)
Attending one of our hands-on workshops might help you to make a difference.

Challenges and solutions for STEAM - Share your challenges and hear about solutions that other teachers are finding to implement STEAM in the primary classroom. Questions discussed will depend on time and number of questions submitted. This is a Q&A-style panel discussion. Prizes for first 5 questions posed.
+ “How do you make a video that effectively teaches someone something about science?”
Get hands-on experience with experienced experts using the latest electronic devices. Or, try a maths workshop based on findings from a twelve year longitudinal study of children through year 1 primary school and beyond. Source: 6).
