STELR Equipment

STELR Equipment

Many STELR modules use different STELR equipment packs.

Purpose-built equipment allows students to undertake both guided and open-ended research.

The equipment has been designed and developed in Australia specifically for STELR and is robust, simple and easy to use.

Student kits contain all the equipment necessary for students to conduct the investigations set out in STELR student workbooks.

Teacher kits contain equipment for quick activities, teacher demonstrations or sample materials for students.

Program used at Yr. 8 level this year. Staff enjoyed playing with the kits as much as students. Enabled lots of experiments to be conducted at school easily. Student engagement was improved (compared to last year when we ‘jerry’ built equipment and tried to make it work). The kits look good and work really well. Stimulated lots of discussion about how to achieve experimental results using the kits. Staff felt comfortable using the kits, as the explanations in the staff and student book were easy to understand and re explain to students. Easy to manage in the classroom with the segments in the kits. 250 students, 15 sessions on energy X 6 classes - nothing broken...
