OpenSTEM Pty Ltd creates resources and complete programs for use in schools and other educational settings, fully aligned with the Australian Curriculum.
Comprehensive Primary Program
Our materials implement the Australian Curriculum (including assessment) and the state-level curricula, but expanded and generally cross-curricular: we integrate the relevant different subjects as experienced in the real world, as well as cater for multi-year level classrooms.
Awesome materials for awesome teachers!
The OpenSTEM® Understanding Our World® Program for Primary Schools is comprehensive, covering all of the version Australian Curriculum Humanities and Social Sciences (HASS) + Science curricula in Primary Schools:
- Foundation (K/Prep) to Year 2 covers History and Geography + Science
- Years 3 and 4 cover History, Geography and Civics & Citizenship + Science
- Years 5 and 6 cover History, Geography, Civics & Citizenship and Economics & Business + Science
The more I see our teachers and students work with the programs, the more convinced I am that we have a great partnership and are doing the right thing by the kids.
— Cheryl Rowe, Principal
Many schools have been using our resources and units, some for a number of years. You can start any time and in a form that suits you (unit trial in one classroom, school wide, or individual teachers or year levels). Contact us for more details, and any questions you might have. Feel free to ask us for a reference (teacher or principal of a school we’ve worked with).
