The Adventures of STEM Island
The Adventures of STEM Island is an amazing adventure for 21st century learners: Code breaking, symbology and discovery learning successfully unites the arts and STEM subjects to develop skills in creativity, computational thinking and confidence! The Adventures of STEM Island embraces performance with STEM subjects to inspire new connections, new ways of thinking and (literally!) new discoveries.
Using specifically designed theatrical mysteries, learners will be immersed into the wonderful world of curiosity. They will learn the hidden secrets and uncover the building blocks for breaking the code. Learners will then be given a series of collaborative, creative and computational tasks that will help them discover the ancient hidden treasure from the Mayan Civilisation.
STEM ISLAND is a hidden island off the coast of South America. Legend has it that priceless treasure – that will help the survival of mankind – was buried there by the ancient and sophisticated Mayan civilisation. So advanced were their techniques in numerology, that it is only now – during the technological revolution (and Google Maps!) – can we begin to locate and unlock the hidden secrets. So far, nobody has been able to break the code and discover the lost treasure.
Your quest is simple: Break the code and find the hidden treasure!
This exciting, unique and holistic workshop is an experience like no other! It combines team work, experiential learning and problem solving to discover the ancient hidden treasures of the Mayan Civilisation! The Adventures of STEM ISLAND is a science-festival of fun, Harry Potter of adventure and Da Vinci Code of challenges.
This exciting learning experience is split into 2 parts: The 1st part will give the learners the opportunity to learn the secrets. The 2nd part will allow learners to apply the secret methods to help them break the code, build the tools and complete the collaborative task of finding the hidden treasure.
Using specifically designed theatrical mysteries, learners will be immersed into the wonderful world of curiosity. They will learn the hidden secrets and demonstrate knowledge and understanding through performance. The secrets uncovered will be their building blocks for breaking the code.
Using their new-found knowledge – and working in teams – learners will be given a series of collaborative, creative and computational tasks. Only when all the teams have successfully completed their challenges, will they have access to all the secret information: A treasure map of STEM ISLAND.
The successful completion of all learning outcomes will allow learners to confidently locate the hidden treasure, unlock their potential and inspire their own life-long creative quest.

“The most significant moment in the course of intellectual development, which gives birth to the purely human forms of practical and abstract intelligence, occurs when speech and practical activity, two previously completely independent lines of development, converge.” Lev Vygotsky
“Logic and mathematics are nothing but specialised linguistic structures.” John Piaget
Total Recall: Memory Masterclass
The best memory techniques are simple but remarkably powerful. They use mental imagery to make information meaningful and memorable.
“It was like getting superhero powers: I was Memo-Man. I could learn words, numbers, facts, lists, names, ideas, essays, skills. All because I knew a few simple tricks of the mind – and I was determined enough to put them into action.” Jonathan Hancock, Memory champion and primary teacher
Once attendees understand that they don’t have a bad memory, they have an untrained memory, their achievements and results are immediate!
Children with poor working memory often struggle to meet the demands of many classroom activities. Remembering and retaining information is vital if leaners are to fulfil their potential. TOTAL RECALL involves acquiring new knowledge and skills that will ensure that all learning can be maximised.
Learners will confidently and effectively be able to remember more information. They will successfully demonstrate their new-found skills in a matter of minutes!
Teachers will immediately add these techniques into their teaching toolbox safe in the knowledge that every single learner will benefit!
