Our Design and Technology program is based on STEM themes such as agriculture, biotechnology and transportation, with a focus firmly on technology and engineering.
It introduces students to the concepts of engineering design and the basic principles of technological systems such as control systems and mechatronics. Students apply this knowledge as they explore a range of themes where the emphasis is very much on the application of technology and project-based problem solving.
Students investigate each theme through a range of meaningful activities that lead towards the development of a creative solution to an open-ended project.
The range of student activities is extensive and includes research, discussion, modelling, simulation, practical design and testing.
Our goal with the Exploring STEM program is to provide the best possible start to a fulfilling STEM career for your students
Our curriculum material uses Active Learning to foster a range of important skills across the core STEM subjects. Our Presentations and Investigations promote processing, questioning and analysing information.

Written with Teachers in Mind
Our content creators have all been involved in the teaching profession at some stage in their careers and they know exactly what teachers need – instructional content that is easy to implement in the classroom.
Support, Support… Support!
At the heart of our learning content is a fully integrated support system. Every lesson includes easy access to academic and technical subject support. Teachers - If something goes wrong or you can’t find the answer online, we are only a phone call away.
Our active learning program is composed of creative hands-on tasks and interactive virtual software that work together flawlessly to create exciting lessons and environments where students can actively engage in their own learning.
Our engaging simulators give students a taste of what it means to think like a scientist or engineer. They allow students to explore, experiment, and test their own ideas in a range of different scenarios that they would not normally get to experience in the classroom.
Each of our courses contains a varied mix of activities to prepare students to complete the open-ended project brief.
