Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics

Bakewell has a strong focus on STEM and as such we have a program that encompasses the learning areas of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. The purpose of the STEM curriculum is to provide students with opportunities and a variety of experiences across these learning areas to develop 21st Century skills.

Our approach to STEM

Students at Bakewell develop their inquiry skills through scientific investigations. It also gives them the opportunity to use their design skills to create and build objects and devices to solve a problem or be used for specific purposes.

Robotics and coding

As part of the Bakewell STEM Program we have an exciting and innovative Robotics and Coding Program with a strong investment in Spheros and Lego EV3 Mindstorm robots.
