About this Unit
The purpose of this unit is for students to gain exposure to authentic contexts for integrating science, technology, engineering and mathematics and to develop knowledge and skills with designing and implementing STEM learning experiences. Students will have the opportunity to complete an authentic interdisciplinary STEM task, and draw upon this experience to design and implement interdisciplinary STEM learning activities aligned to syllabus outcomes. This unit will allow students to simulate and evaluate the teaching practices associated with high-quality interdisciplinary STEM lessons, and collaborate with peers who have expertise in different STEM disciplines.
