MATCHING learning in the classroom with real life opportunities and careers can help inspire the next generation as students at Leeton Public School have discovered.
Students recently participated in a Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics (STEAM) dress up day.
While it might sound like a mouthful, the day itself was designed to have students recognise what they are learning at school can be translated into careers and jobs down the track across a wide range of industries.
There were many bright and colourful costumes, including some coming dressed as construction workers, a robot, engineers, scientists, doctors and the social media Snapchat logo even made an appearance.
Some of the activities included building bridges and other structures out of different objects, chemical reactions and creating "pom pom catapults".
A range of activities were held across the school classes on the day for all students to learn together and participate in.
Leeton Public said STEAM education results in students who take thoughtful risks, engage in experiential learning, persist in problem solving, embrace collaboration and work through the creative process equals the country's next innovators, educators, leaders and learners of the 21st Century.
