STEM Professionals in Schools is a national volunteer program that facilitates partnerships between schools and industry to bring a real STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) into the classroom.
Friday 14th Alisa, Murray and myself headed off to Lambton Public School to show Year 3 students the wonderful world of Earth Sciences. We took with us examples of different rock types (Murray even included a few specimens from his personal collection), as well as microscopes for the students play with. The students were enthusiastic, engaged and made it a great day. There were definitely a few budding Earth Scientists amongst them.
