Mitcham Girls High School

STEM

At Mitcham Girls High School we are committed to providing a learning environment that encourages our students to explore the disciplines of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics). This includes the development of an exciting, relevant, engaging, inquiry based STEM curriculum for students whilst providing pathways to tertiary studies and careers in STEM related industries.

Mitcham Girls participate in a range of STEM activities, both in class through their Science, Technologies and Mathematics subjects as well as many other extracurricular events and competitions, some of which include:

In 2017, Mitcham Girls High School joined the Advanced Technology Project (ATP), an initiative funded by the Commonwealth Department of Defence to link STEM industries with schools.  The project aims to increase the number of young people who undertake career pathways in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM).  The project also aims to provide teachers with relevant skills and resources to support student learning in STEM and foster sustainable partnerships with Business, Industry, Community and Tertiary groups to enhance student learning.

Mitcham Girls High Schools’ commitment to STEM comes from evidence that STEM skills are in high demand in many current and future career pathways.  The current focus is on all curriculum areas adopting an interdisciplinary teaching approach to STEM.  The current STEM workspaces redevelopment (Level 3 and L Block) will further provide the opportunity for any student, at any year level, within any subject, to apply elements of STEM learning throughout their time at Mitcham Girls High School.
