    Meet Nick Pattison

    Nick Pattison

    Nick Pattison started New Zealand’s first STEM immersion class at Rongomai Primary in Otara in 2016 to show how STEM education can provide accelerated learning for the students. His primary classroom led the testing of homes for mould in South Auckland.

    As Learning Designer STEM at Ormiston Junior College and Primary, Nick is pushing the boundaries of what a modern New Zealand education looks like. He is leading projects with large companies toward community outcomes such as increasing fishing stock, monitoring bee population health, creating biochar from plant waste to sequester carbon and grow food crops all while making it fun and engaging for the students, scientist and community.

    Presenting alongside some of his students at uLearn18, Nick will share recent examples of successful collaborations in order to provide powerful learning experiences and benefits for both his students and community. 

    More and more schools are embracing authentic ways to empower students from an awareness of global issues through student inquiry to incorporating STEM learning opportunities (Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths) in a meaningful way.

    What real world issues are your students working together to address? We'd love to hear more or if you have any questions for Nick prior/during or after uLearn, feel free to add these below. To respond to this discussion, first join edSpace and the uLearn discussion group to post.
