Abstract

This chapter presents a series of case studies exploring what science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) clubs look like and developing an understanding of the possibilities and challenges inherent in this informal approach to STEM education. It shows how do STEM clubs support STEM learning and teaching? The chapter describes programmed settings that enabled participants to engage with a programme of STEM-focused learning activities or events over a sustained period of time. In 2018, researchers from the University of Southern Queensland, working with Inspiring Australia Queensland, hosted by Queensland Museum, and STEM clubs across Queensland developed a framework for making sense of what quality or effective learning and teaching might look like in STEM clubs. In creating space for passionate learning, STEM clubs are again responding to their broader context by carving out space for students to pursue interests, deeply engage with STEM and participate in informal learning, even when the broader organisational context is one built around formal learning.
