Let's put the A in STEM Education
What is it all about?
> Your class works with FLUX's experienced facilitators for 6 weeks to develop a STEM (science, technology, engineering, maths) inspired dance performance.
> Class teachers can choose the STEM related theme/topic.
(You could choose Forces and Motion, Lights and Shadow, Coding, Space and Planets, Rain forests, Volcanoes...or anything STEM themed.)
> All school groups meet during week 6 to share their work to each other.
> Local STEM businesses are invited to support the event.
Moving Science makes learning STEM fun, accessible, captivating and imaginative.
It utilises the arts to encourage cross curricular learning whilst breaking down language barriers students face when accessing; Science Technology Engineering & Maths (STEM).
Use the Arts as a platform to engage students who have relatively little affinity to STEM
Encourage teachers to continue cross-curricular learning as a pathway to STEM
Strengthen students’ communication, creative thinking and social skills
Celebrate diversity within education and provide a creative platform for students to share ideas.

Celebrating the Arts in Education
For the new academic year, I wanted to bring something new and exciting to the table. Something that would link the local community, support the curriculum, celebrate diversity and creative education.
