Science and STEM
Blend offers schools and teachers assistance in developing school programmes with a clear focus on fostering students' scientific literacy. Our STEM and science facilitator, Nick Bithell has a large reservoir of experience to draw from, having worked as a specialist science teacher for over 20 years and recently as an facilitator within the STEM field.
Nick can work with teachers to provide workshops and strategic planning as well as being able to work in the classroom with the teacher to model and support, enabling good practice to become embedded.
Sustainability is a clear focus within the New Zealand Curriculum and environmental sustainability may be the most pressing concern for mankind. Science is at the forefront of developing rigorous understanding of our impact on our environment and also in developing solutions including new technology. Giving sustainability a valued place in your curriculum makes learning immediately relevant and future-focused, providing students with the opportunity to ponder and address real-life problems.
