STEAM at Springfield Gardens Primary Hobart

Megan Floris


This term we’ve had a fantastic opportunity to collaborate closely with the students and teaching staff at Springfield Gardens Primary School in Hobart on one of 24 Carrot’s awesome school garden projects. Working together we are using the garden program to enhance the school’s current STEAM units and maximise the learning potential for students outdoors. This has involved implementing a structure of rotational activities for the garden program based on student input and feedback, the curriculum focus and strands and STEAM objectives of each year level.  The garden-based activities are then divided into the categories of Explore, Investigate, Experiment and Action and students rotate weekly through each activity. Stay tuned to watch how we continue to STEAM up Springfield Gardens.
