The STEM Learning Project is focused on developing the STEM capabilities required for the jobs of the future.

The project provides curriculum resource modules and teacher professional learning to support teachers of STEM from K-12.

Students are challenged to solve open-ended, real-world problems using problem-based learning pedagogy that engages students in the processes of the STEM disciplines working collaboratively in teams.

The STEM Learning Project is funded by the Department of Education and is being implemented by a consortium of ECAWA, MAWA, STAWA and Scitech.
