STEM education prepares pupils for the roles of the future by developing skills such as innovation, creativity, reasoning and problem-solving, in addition to science skills such as questioning, observing, predicting, experimenting, analysing and communicating. Both in the Irish context and internationally, STEM subjects and their role in a pupil’s education are receiving greater attention.

The aim of Science: A STEM Approach is to give 3rd Class pupils a foundation in these subjects at primary level so that they have the knowledge, skills and confidence to build upon them in their further education.

The book features:

four units based around learning concepts in Living Things, Energy and Forces, Materials and Earth and the Environment;
individual lesson plans in each unit to develop science and STEM concepts;
a STEM Project in each unit where pupils have to design and create, and apply their knowledge and skills;
ideas for incorporating technology in the classroom;
background information for the teacher;
resource sheets; and
a range of assessment activities.
Each unit also includes a STEM Project that links the science knowledge and skills learnt with aspects of engineering, design and technology, information technology and mathematics.

Each STEM Project also includes:

a design brief;
STEM curriculum links;
alternative project ideas;
advice on assessing STEM skills, understanding and processes; and
photocopiable resource sheets.
