Rooty Hill High School

Rooty Hill High School Institute of Sport

In this project the RHHS STEM team adopted a project based assessment approach to engage the entire Year 8 cohort in authentic, enriched and cross-curricular learning. In this presentation, STEM team members will share their research and experiences in planning and implementing the project, focusing on the practical issues such as smart timetabling, assessment integration, STEM culture building and possible challenges and barriers. Students were required to create an integrated portfolio of evidence towards a ‘Rooty Hill Institute of Sport and Kinetics’. The team will also discuss how to embed STEM education in the curriculum of middle level education, and how to develop, through STEM, students’ general capability in creative and critical thinking and entrepreneurism.
