STEMSEL

Year 10
Subject Information

Students need to have achieved a 4 or better in two of either Science Maths or Technology.

Subject Description

STEMSEL is a blended learning environment that teaches students computational thinking and focuses on the real world applications of problem solving.  Students will learn how to design, build and program microcomputer-embedded electronic solutions (microcontrollers) in response to complex 21st century problems. Microcontrollers form the brains of digital electronics systems found in a wide range of industries, including the automotive, telecommunications, biomedical, aviation, smart toys, power generation and defence industries. Social enterprise learning is at the core of this course; students work on projects and develop practical products to improve human and environmental well-being. The course is extremely effective in stimulating interest in integrated Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics in a Social Enterprise Learning context (STEMSEL).
 
STEM courses have been designed to meet a need. Projections estimate the need for 8.65 million workers this year in STEM-related jobs in the US alone (STEMconnector.org). Higher order thinking skills are developed in an engaging and relevant way using a hands-on approach.
