Species adaptations - a learning with STEAM 

Take the teaching and learning of species adaptation to a whole new level by developing inquiry units that use the lens of STEM/STEAM. It’s no longer just about the adaptation of species it’s about linking their adaptation to their habitat.  A STEM/STEAM inquiry unit can take a student on a journey from scientist, to technician, to engineer, to artist and mathematician, to use their knowledge to design and construct nest boxes and insect hotels and contribute in a very real way to a school’s creation of a biodiversity corridor.  Taking the learning from nature, into the classroom and back out to nature!

Date and time: Tuesday 22nd October, 4 - 5.30pm

Location: Armadale Primary School, Densham Road, Armadale

Catering provided.
