HOP­ING TO EN­COUR­AGE LEARN­ING IN STEM SUB­JECTS.

APC Australia - - Tech Notes -

A $6 mil­lion pro­gram be­ing de­vel­oped by the Aus­tralian Gov­ern­ment will in­tro­duce tablets with in­ter­ac­tive apps and other tech­ni­cally-fo­cused work­shops to pre-school­ers, in the hope of spark­ing greater early in­ter­est in STEM sub­jects (Science, Tech­nol­ogy, Engi­neer­ing and Maths). The in­vest­ment fol­lows a suc­cess­ful early-learn­ing English pro­gram that em­ployed sim­i­lar meth­ods, and will be tri­alled on 4,000 chil­dren in the com­ing months. HD
