Living sustainably

Years 5 and 6

Nemingha Public School

Driving question

How can we live more sustainably?


We collaborated with Ermington West Public School at the initial STEM conference and proposed a mutually suitable question, How can we live more sustainably? Our students focused on farming and irrigation methods as well as recycling and cost effective zero energy housing solutions. This project was student-driven, allowing them to use design thinking and work collaboratively to solve sustainability issues at a local level. It also gave students the opportunity to show what they could create together given diverse learning opportunities. It has shown us that valuable learning does not have to be pen and paper or tablet.
