          Hi everyone.
          Welcome to the 2021 STEM on Demand Networking Lounge.
          Our focus will be on how we use virtual and online opportunities to provide access to quality STEM education for all students.
          I am the Deputy Principal of the Queensland Virtual STEM Academy (North Queensland). The Academy is a network of schools across Queensland that deliver STEM enrichment courses to students who would not otherwise be able to participate.
          I’m looking forward to facilitating this discussion with you and learning more about the innovative approaches that educators are employing to achieve STEM excellence online.

            Hi Wendy,

            What a wonderful initiative. I am always looking for new and innovative ways to connect with students and teachers.

            Could you let us know one thing that is working really well for your students?

            I have also seen a really interesting Clubhouse session all about making online STEM camps and virtual excursions engaging. Let me know if you’d like a free iOS link to listen in, it’s on next week.

            Ta, Kylie

                Hi Kylie,
                Just one thing that is working for the students? That is a tough question. There are so many aspects of online learning that when successfully combined, can build aspirations for further STEM learning and inspire students into pursue STEM pathways.
                However, if I had to choose one, it would be that when students collaboratively engage online with other like-minded students from different schools, they really lift each other to new heights. They challenge thoughts, opinions, ideas and work together to develop solutions. They belong to a special group of students who share a common passion and they explore this together.

                Hi Wendy, glad that you’re leading this conversation!
                There’s a chat on Clubhouse around this topic coming up this weekend on Saturday, 10:00am AEDT

                In the meantime, looking forward to hearing more from educators in this space 🙂
