STEM is an interdisciplinary approach to educating students across the curriculum areas of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. NVHS offers a variety of STEM initiatives which focus on challenging problems and Inquiry Based Learning projects.
The NSW Department of Education has established several STEM Action Schools to mentor and share innovative STEM practice and programs with schools. STEM Action Schools implement curriculum programs designed to develop students’ foundational knowledge and skills in STEM subjects as well as skills of collaboration, critical and creative thinking and problem solving.
