    Head of Innovation, Entrepreneurialism, and Business - Pacific Lutheran College, Caloundra. I have taught in high schools for 30 years and now oversee a middle school STEM program that focuses on problem-based learning. I liaise with businesses in our local community and encourage them to be vested in the curriculum we teach. At the end of each year, our STEM students showcase their learning to the community.

Abstract

In this session, I will showcase our middle school STEM program with particular emphasis on how at Pacific Lutheran College implements a problem-based learning approach to its STEM program. Artefacts our students create include rollercoasters, solar ovens, light projects, and underwater drones.
