Support plus early exposure for young students to science, technology, engineering & maths (STEM) is critical to ensuring social and economic well-being into the future. But what about support to help teachers be able to confidently and effectively teach STEM topics and activities?

The Australian Power Institute (API) along with supporting partner The Australian Academy of Technology and Engineering (ATSE) has led the development of this practical and exciting STEM program. The API "Day in the Life of a 7 year old" (DIL) program encourages curiosity in STEM for kids by providing easy to use resources designed to help teachers connect primary school students to the world of STEM careers, 21st century skills and increase STEM awareness.


  • Six curriculum-linked modules
  • Teacher workbook and training videos
  • Easy-to-use guided activity worksheets
  • 90% adaptable to in-home/remote learning
  • Adaptable to any year in Primary School

The program offers flexibility for use in the classroom as well as via learning from home/remote channels. It also allows participating schools to access university students and/or industry professionals (where available) to visit classrooms (in person or virtually) to talk with students to expose them to real life careers in STEM.
