From the outset of Term 1, 2022, we have seen the introduction of Year 10 STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Action, and Maths) and the refinement of the Year 9 programme.

The beginning of this year has seen a focus on the 21st Century skills which are essential for our STEAM students: teamwork, communication, and analytical thinking.

They have been undertaking a series of different challenges, working in a variety of groups to help evolve and foster these skills.

They completed challenges such as moving liquid-filled vessels around a room—without touching the vessel, making timing gates using Micro:bits, designing earthquake-proof buildings, making a 30-second marble run, and more.  All of these challenges are designed to stretch the team’s communication and analytical thinking skills.
