Knowledge of the STEAMM disciplines (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics and Medicine) is required, together with the interdisciplinary skills of STEAMM students, to enhance community education and facilitate creative solutions to the complex problems in developing a sustainable physical environment and human society in Australia. This unit will allow students to deepen their experience of the interdisciplinary teams while working with groups external to the University on community focused projects. The wide range of skills to be developed by students include: team development; project management; community consultation; client relationship development; research skills; problem identification and solving, presentation skills; verbal and written communication; and team evaluation and individual reflection. The learning approach will be a mix of lectures, together with project consultations and workshops held at university, and on-site, with community project partners. Schools, particularly Stage 5 (Years 9 and10) students and teachers, will be a primary client group. Other potential project partners may include public, private and non-government sector organisations. Projects undertaken will involve a process of client consultation, research and investigation, project design, implementation and evaluation.
