Improving STEM education and skills

Improving STEM education and skills

At the close of Term 2, Kellie Morgan (Director of ELC and Junior Years) presented at the national conference in Sydney ‘Improving STEM education and skills’. Kellie was invited to speak due to our School’s reputation as leading innovation in girls’ education and our 2015 Innovative Schools Award, which related to the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) disciplines.

The only presenter representing the Junior Years, Kellie’s presentation focused on the way we approach STEM in the Early and Junior Years with our girls, which was well received by an audience of predominately secondary educators, who were all impressed with the capabilities of our youngest students. Kellie was keen to hear from the other speakers about what is happening in schools around Australia. Many schools expressed a keen desire to work collaboratively with MGGS to inspire and empower each other to drive this important agenda.
