Australian Science & Mathematics School School STEM

Located on campus of Flinders University


The australian science mathematics school
The Australian Science & Mathematics School School STEM

  • A public school that caters for years 10 – 12.

  • Purpose designed open learning environment, opened in 2003

  • 360 students and 35 teaching staff.


Mission vision and nature of the asms
Mission, vision and nature of the ASMS School STEM

  • A school for the renaissance of teaching and learning in science and mathematics

  • A school to create learners who are critical thinkers and problem solvers, communicators, collaborative, and creative and innovative

  • A school with global recognition for innovation, excellence and enterprise

  • A school for all South Australian students

ASMS is

innovative in approaches to teaching & learning



Asms has developed a strong pedagogy of student centred inquiry based teaching
ASMS has developed a strong pedagogy of student centred School STEMinquiry-based teaching

  • helping students find answers to their questions

  • providing activities that provoke these questions and then creating opportunities by which students can gather and interrogate evidence and information



Understanding the problem
Understanding the Problem School STEM

Derailleur Hanger

“weak link”

Costs ~$13 to replace

Doesn’t always break when it should

No common design between different bikes


Exploring the possibilities
Exploring the Possibilities School STEM

3D printing as a possible solution

Cheaper (<$1 worth of plastic)

Always “in stock”

May break more readily than metal (good thing)

Start with simplified copy of original geometry

Modify the designbased on testingoutcomes


Resolving the problem
Resolving the problem School STEM

Improvements made so far:

Switch from ABS to PLA for brittle fracture

Modified geometry to improve stiffness

Remaining challenges:

Inconsistent properties between samples

Different strength in different directions

Rate-dependent strength.
