In Australia, a National stem School Education Strategy provides guidance for a whole school approach to stem, going so far as to suggest that that new teaching approaches be implemented and evaluated, and that stem be prioritised in teacher professional learning. In recent years, some Australian teachers/schools have enacted stem pedagogies, in the face of a curriculum that remains focussed on the siloed, traditional disciplines of science and mathematics, and more recently digital technologies (implicitly incorporating engineering) but a more consistent and equitable approach is needed. This chapter synthesises what is known about stem as it pertains to primary and secondary teacher practice, leadership in education, and enactment of the Australian curriculum; and summarises the implications for teacher education and professional practice in the future.
