Most conferences currently being offered on STEM, STEAM and Entrepreneurship tend to be targeted towards teachers and involve a series of speakers and the occasional mini-workshops.

This conference is designed to be different. This conference is designed by students and teachers for students and teachers.

The intent of the “It Takes a Spark” conference is to bring together students and teachers with industry and universities using an authentic sharing and experiential model. Participants will connect with inspiring female industry role models, share their current school based activities and projects with one another, create networks of teachers and student teams, and solve social justice design challenges.

  • The participation of the students is as important as teachers as our intent is to ignite, empower and nurture both students and teachers to be leaders of STEAM and Entrepreneurship within their schools. This is a conference designed and led by students and teachers for students and teachers.
  • Teachers will have both formal and informal opportunities to speak to other teachers who have enacted programs and activities in their schools and get their questions answered.
  • The workshops and social justice design challenges are all hands-on so students and teachers will experience first-hand what it is like to be part of great STEAM and entrepreneurial learning. This will spark new ideas about curriculum and pedagogy.

Who should attend

  • Students – those who are already (or aspire to be) Technology Leaders in your school
  • Teachers – those who have little experience and those who have a lot
  • Heads of Learning Areas / Curriculum – who wish to discuss how to create trans-disciplinary units that are powerfully engaging
  • Principals and Deputy Principals – to witness what is possible by embedding the Technologies Curriculum in your school
