Lumifold: A STEM To STEAM Teacher's Workshop

Lumifold: A STEM To STEAM Teacher's Workshop
When:
31 May 2016
14:00 - 16:00
Location:
Museum of Contemporary Art, Australia, Level 6 Terrace Entrance (Circular Quay West Side), Sydney NSW 2000

To bring innovation to science, technology, engineering and maths we need to stimulate a passion for STEM in the next generation of students.

In this workshop for educators, hear from a dynamic team of panellists on integrating art and design in STEM subjects, plus take part in a hands-on workshop that you can bring to the classroom.

Hear from Sally-Ann Williams, Google Education Outreach Manager, Annabel Astbury from ABC Splash and artist Liz Shreeve on creating dynamic, engaging STEM to STEAM concepts for schools.

Make a stunning paper lamp to take home using a technique called Origami Sekkei  (mathematical paper folding). Be amazed at how you can transform a flat piece of paper into an intricate three dimensional form that expresses ideas related to elementary symmetries, bio mimicry and iteration.

This event is suitable for primary and secondary teachers, pre-service teachers and anyone interested in interdisciplinary practice.

The Lumifold Workshop has BOTSES accreditation.

Completing Lumifold: A STEM to STEAM project will contribute 2 hours of QTC Registered PD addressing Standards 1.5.2, 2.1.2,3.5.2, 6.3.2, and 7.4.2 from the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers towards maintaining Proficient Teacher Accreditation in NSW.

Presented by STEAMpop and Refraction Media.
