On 2 May 2015, The Cube hosted Creative Lab, a two-day professional development program designed to connect educators, curriculum writers and academics to STEAM learning experiences through hands-on workshops.
Conceived by the Queensland Museum in partnership with QUT The Cube, the program provided a platform to further the institutions’ commitment to creative, innovative ways of learning and teaching.
For day two of Creative Lab, The Cube delivered four workshops developed and facilitated by The Cube’s public programs team, pre-service teachers, alumni and current students from the Faculty of Education, Creative Industries and Science and Engineering Faculties, games industry veteran Matt Ditton, and digital media artist/curator Lubi Thomas. Each workshop provided an opportunity to experience different technologies through a STEAM learning framework.
Creative Lab aimed to spark inspiration, conversation and an understanding about the value of STEAM, how it can be implemented within the classroom and how cultural and tertiary institutions can support this growing momentum.
