Norwood Morialta High School is leading an innovative STEM program from P-12, and is recognised as a leader in the field of STEM.
We are part of the Morialta Partnership, a local network of 12 schools and preschools committed to working collaboratively in developing powerful learners in STEM. We offer a number of STEM pathways, and have a strong record of success in Stage 2 STEM-related subjects.
What is STEM?
STEM is the practical application of Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths to design and build solutions to improve human and environmental well-being.
A STEM education allows our young people to develop competencies and skills across science, technology, engineering and maths, in order that they are able to communicate, collaborate and creatively solve the problems they may encounter now and in the future.
It builds higher order thinking skills in our young people, as well as a disposition to want to contribute to solving local, national and international issues.
A STEM education ultimately creates critical thinkers and enables the next generation of innovators to develop new products and processes that will not only sustain our economy, but provide solutions to increasingly complex global issues.
Some of our STEM initiatives include:
- Computer Science and Engineering Pathways from Year 8 – 12
- Environmental Science Pathway from Year 8 - 12, with a focus on STEM for Sustainability
- Student leadership and mentoring of STEMies, a program for students from Years 5-7 from our Partnership schools. Each primary school student is partnered with a secondary school buddy to learn how to design, build and program microcontrollers in response to a real world problem.
- Industry partnerships with Concept2Creation
- Academic partnership with UniSA.
