STEAM Education

Mr DULUK (Waite) (16:05): I rise today to talk about the very important subject of education and about STEM in our school system. We all know what STEM is. Today, the member for Florey talked about LAMP as well. They are two acronyms that are very important to the education of our future generations.

Rather than teach four disciplines as separate subjects, there is an increased focus on integrating them into a cohesive learning program.

International Epilepsy Day

Mr DULUK (Waite) (10:56): I rise to commend the member for Mount Gambier's motion in its amended form and wholeheartedly thank the member for Mount Gambier for bringing it to the house. As the member raised in his contribution, it is an issue that is very important to me, to my constituents and to many South Australians, and he understands, as I do, the importance of supporting those in our community, some 61,000 South Australians, who live with this condition.
