In STEM++ Communication, we focus on three main areas:

  • Structuring

  • Writing

  • Presentation

In Structuring, we look at

  • the five Ws – what, why, who, where, when

  • top-down vs bottom up communication

  • deciding on a writing style based on the format

In Writing, we look at

  • storytelling – looking at aspects such as how to engage the audience, how to introduce humor / drama / action

  • we touch upon fiction vs non fiction writing, and how each one presents different opportunities

  • we also look at different ways to write including illustrative – comics / doodles, short articles, essays and so on

In Presentations we look at

  • public speaking including presenting to peers, such as explaining concepts that have been learned in other areas of our curriculum

  • producing and editing videos – including planning out the scenes, budgets, actors, technical etc

  • making video blogs and how to integrate all the learning to make your own videos
