STEM projects this week .. using a Bluetooth enabled Arduino compatible experimental board.

Mag-Net is an incorporated group of science, technology, engineering and maths educators.  It was formed from a network of teachers that ran the Mag-Net Science and technology centred based at Monash University and at the University of Melbourne in the 1990's.  Mag-Net has been incorporated in Victoria since 2014.

It now a formal/informal network of educators concerned with the interpretation and incorporation of STEM ideas   in the formal classroom.

Past and Future Activities

Mag-Net Online Association of STEM Educators Incorporated.  We presented at  MAVCON 2018, MAVCON 2019 and again at MAVCON22 to present "Where do the Rich People Live?".  Come along and participate in the discussion.

We were pleased to raise the issue of STEM at the Science Teachers' Conference ... but nothing appeared at MAVCON in 2013.  John presented the use of "open-ended" maths software at  MAVCON 2014 in December 2014.  We spoke device programming at MAVCON 2015.
