Creative Lab (STEM to STEAM: 21st Century Learning)

Queensland Museum with The Cube and kuril dhagun, State Library of Queensland, invite you to the Creative Lab.

Creative Lab will enable educators to explore new ways to engage students with STEM content through the creative learning framework of STEAM. The two-day schedule includes:

  • Immersive Indigenous dinner
  • Light lunch on both days
  • Closing network event
  • Take-home materials

What is STEAM?

Queensland Museum and The Cube are supporting a growing momentum in education circles to integrate the Arts into STEM education. STEAM encourages an experiential approach to learning — where emphasis shifts from content delivery to make room for self-directed discovery. STEAM is a framework for teaching which “teaches people how to learn” (Yakman, 2011). This framework explores multisensory, project-based and co-operative experiences to engage and prepare learners for problem solving in the 21st century.
