Creative Lab: STEM to STEAM - 21st Century Learning
In May 2015, we held our first of these professional development sessions. Over 100 Educators were animating, balancing, building, evaluating, creating and thinking outside of the square and across the curriculum!

Download the program for the next Creative Lab (Oct 16-17, 2015) to see photos of our teachers in action! What the teachers said:

  • “The museum location allowed us to be immersed in the learning - a new, fun, and interactive way that allowed us to see the real possibilities for learning.”
  • “All of the workshops offered something that could be used in school classrooms. It also gave me some ideas about school visits to the Museum and making them more interesting.”
  • “Great workshop spaces; so different from a regular conference centre. It is inspiring to work in such a creative place.”

Discover more - Humanoid Discovery teacher program was held on 10 February 2015 and provided teachers with a free preview of the Humanoid Discovery exhibition which is on at the Sciencentre until 12 July 2015. Teachers attending the preview focused on the exhibition's main themes, links to the curriculum and how the exhibition could support their students' learning. Each teacher received a Teacher Pack as part of the program.    

Discover more – Afghanistan: Hidden Treasures from the National Museum, Kabul  provided teachers with a unique opportunity to preview this touring exhibition after school hours. The session showcased learning resources to support student learning and align with curriculum.  This Professional Development session was attended by 70 teachers from South East Qld and Northern NSW. Our special thanks goes to those teachers who partnered with Qld Museum's Learning Team to further develop and describe educational resources and experiences this exhibition could offer.
