Viewbank College STEAM Futures Conference 2022

Middle School Year 9 Student Lab

The focus for this conference is to learn how to initiate and build student agency and leadership through the shared experiences of educators and students in running broad-ranging STEAM projects in collaboration with external organisations. 

​Students develop 21st century skills such as self-efficacy and problem-solving, from being immersed in projects. Facilitating the organisation and operation of these projects is not easy, and so this conference is bringing together a wide-range of teachers, students and industry professionals – who will share their insights, tips and traps, from their experiences in managing these projects firsthand.

Keynote Speaker

 Leah Heiss – Melbourne-based designer and Monash University academic

Leah is a Melbourne-based designer and Monash University academic working at the nexus of design, health and technology. Her process is deeply collaborative, and she works with experts from nanotechnology through to manufacturing.
