The STEAM Maker Conference is an incredible PD opportunity for teachers involved in STEM/STEAM. Everyone has heard about STEM and STEAM.  They’re the new buzz words in the education landscape.  Every school in Australia is grappling right now with how to incorporate STEAM into their students’ learning and provide teachers with the knowledge skills and dispositions to successful STEAM teachers.

STEAM Maker is a conference made by teachers for teachers.  We have a line-up of world class speakers combined with the practical know-how of teachers and school leaders.  Everything you need to get you started on your journey engaging students across K-12 in Science, Technology, Engineering, The Arts and Mathematics (STEAM) in purposeful learning that is relevant, engaging and focused on practical, real-world outcomes.
