STEAM @ PVGC

What is STEAM:

STEAM utilises the Learning Areas of Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics as access points for guiding student inquiry, dialogue, and critical thinking. The aim of STEAM at Pascoe Vale Girls College is to give students access to hands-on, experiential learning programs, workshops and events, which will enable our students to be creative, innovative thinkers and future leaders in the fields of STEAM.
