As a part of the ongoing development of STEMfit we get together every now and again to test out our ideas and let the kids loose on the technology.
Of course getting together in the NT takes a little bit of driving. here is one such trip! Many thanks to Jetta for the time-lapse of the drive (it seems so much shorter somehow).
There is a lot going on in the classroom, STEM skills often represent a whole new language and without out context its challenging to learn. This is where sport can be so useful, its as close to a universal language you can get. Its gives context and meaning to human activity, joining the dots with STEM skills to understand how we move is an exciting way to harness this intrest in out bodies.
For many of our students English is also a second language too, so thats another language to add to the mix, luckily we can can all have a good time in the playground to establish rapport and meaning to the classroom experience
