STEM education is the learning of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) in an interdisciplinary or integrated approach. Students gain and apply knowledge, deepen their understanding and develop creative and critical thinking skills within an authentic real-world context. The iSTEM School Developed Course covers a number of STEM based fields, including STEM Fundamentals, Aerodynamics, Motion, Mechatronics, Surveying, Aerospace, Statistics, CAD/CAM and Biotechnology.

Individual modules provide specific content related to CNC, computer-controlled machining, computer integrated manufacture, 3D printing, product modelling and testing which will be developed in the key areas of; Skills, Technologies, Engineering Principles and Processes and Mechanics. It may include inquiry, problem and project-based learning.

The iSTEM course utilises a practical integrated approach with engineering and technology being used to drive engagement in science and mathematics, through the development of technical skills and mechanical engineering knowledge. Its main purpose is to increase student STEM ability, engagement, participation and aspiration. This will lead to an increase in the number of students studying STEM based subjects in the senior years and ultimately the number of student matriculating to tertiary study in STEM and eventually STEM and Non-STEM based employment
