The key innovation underpinning ReMSTEP is the exploration of ways of linking pre-service teachers to practising scientists and mathematicians, in order to represent the creativity and drive of scientific and mathematical thinking for these future teachers.

This agenda is part of a wider movement in Australia and internationally to bring school STEM practices closer to the way STEM is practised professionally.

A large part of this agenda is to make STEM subjects more relevant and engaging, and to better promote the thinking needed for effective participation in 21st century Australia.

The experience of ReMSTEP is thus very relevant for pioneering innovative teaching practices that engage school students in quality science and mathematics learning.

Come and learn about the impacts, outcomes and findings of the ReMSTEP project at our final conference.
