Research Project B

SACE Stage 2

10 credits

STEM Research Project enables students to complete their compulsory Research Project with an emphasis on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics).

Completing the Research Project with a STEM focus will enable students to gain skills relevant to their future study in an area of global significance while fostering good networking relationships for their chosen career or study path. Students will be given the opportunity to directly link their research with tertiary and industry contacts.

An emphasis on the school assessed outcome, including a possible practical component in their final product, will encourage STEM learning and the development of essential 21st Century skills.

Students will learn and apply research processes and the knowledge and skills specific to the research topic they have chosen while a record of research is maintained in a folio and an evaluation of their processes is completed.
