STEM Project Learning Areas for Years 4 - 6

Where can a STEM career take this generation of students?

It turns out, just about anywhere and everywhere.

The skill sets required for today’s jobs are rapidly changing and evolving, and for the future generation of workers, STEM skills will be more important than ever.

In fact, 75 percent of jobs in the fastest growing industries already require STEM skills, and 90 percent of jobs will require people with STEM skills in the next two to five years. (Jobs and Skills, WA)

A STEM skill set can land students in exciting and impactful career paths such as chemistry, psychology, aviation, computer science, food science, building and construction, and even automotive industries.

But future workers and professionals aren’t just limited to STEM fields.

STEM education also equips students with a huge range of transferable skills that can be applied to just about any career path (including digital media, accounting and bookkeeping, arts, communications, sports, baking, and more!)

So no matter your students' interests and career goals, STEM skills will be essential in setting them up for success to pursue their dreams.


When is the best time to start introducing STEM in the classroom?

Ideally, as soon as possible – but especially during their formative years when students are at a stage of cognitive development that makes them curious, creative, and open to exploring new concepts.

During the ages of 8–11, children are constantly ideating what they might like to be when they grow up and discovering new passions and interests.

This means, the more you can connect STEM to different subject areas in primary years, the more likely they are to develop the skills and confidence to pursue a great career opportunity!

One of our favourite classroom resources that can support this are our STEM projects.

Integrating science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, STEM projects focuses on the knowledge and understanding of four sub-strands of science.

Students can work collaboratively or individually to build transferable problem-solving and innovative thinking skills for engagement with the everyday world.

This is the perfect resource to introduce and use between the years of 4–6 – and now is an ideal time to get your hands on STEM projects for upper grades!

For the entire month of February 2024, we’re doing a bundle deal on STEM projects Years 4–6 (get all three for just $155.02 and save over $100!)


Benefits of teaching STEM in classrooms between Years 4–6:

  • Critical thinking and problem-solving skills: through hands-on, inquiry based learning activities, students are encouraged to think critically and solve problems. This also fosters the development of analytical skills and the ability to approach challenges methodically.

    Our STEM projects are packed with collaborative, hands-on, inquiry based learning activities!
  • Innovation and creativity skills: STEM education nurtures creativity by allowing students to explore and apply their imaginations in solving real-world problems. This creativity is essential for innovation, which is crucial in a rapidly evolving technological landscape.

    Our STEM projects inspire student innovation and creativity through a consistent design process, which encourages students to source required information, plan and design a labelled diagram, create the project, evaluate that criteria is met, and explain their work.
  • Collaboration and communication skills: Classroom STEM activities require teamwork, collaboration, and effective communication. So working on STEM activities can support students to develop interpersonal skills, as well as the ability to express and share their ideas with others.

    Through our STEM projects, students are encouraged to work together to explain the science behind their project and showcase their work through various methods such as oral presentations, video demonstrations, and guided tours.


With activities like designing an alien, building a bridge, and creating a magnet maze, there’s something for everyone in our STEM projects.

Get Years 4–6 before the end of February for just $155.02 and save over $100 – shop STEM projects today.
