Community of Schools STEM

- visits to Year 4

 

Throughout May, a small team of Year 11 students provided Year 4 students from the Keira Community of Schools with a stimulating and rewarding half day of STEM activities. For most of the team their expertise was founded in the Science and Engineering Challenge of 2016 and proven in the polished delivery of activities that they have been instrumental in developing and refining.

Each of the public schools was visited and there was a focus on tower design and construction and solving the logistics and economy of networking outback communities.

 

 

 

The STEM visits were an outstanding success and nothing less was ever expected. Twenty one hours of quality learning delivered to over 200 Year 4 students. It is very pleasing for the Keira staff to be able to walk into a venue, say a few words and then step back and marvel as a team of highly professional experts from Year 11 delivered an engaging experience to a very appreciative audience.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


 

Community of Schools STEM

- Year 5 Tournament Day

 

Over 200 Year 5 students from Pleasant Heights, Balgownie, Fairy Meadow, Mount Ousley, Wollongong and Coniston Public Schools competed in a range of stimulating STEM activities, designed and delivered by a team of Year 11 students of Keira High School.

 

 

This team has at its heart the reigning state finalists from the Illawarra and SE NSW division of the Science and Engineering Challenge of 2016.
This year’s STEM Tournament team also included several equally motivated and dedicated volunteers who were new to STEM. The team put in many hours of preparation, largely in their own time before and after school, to ready equipment, build new devices, design new activities and evaluate and refine instructions, rules and scoring systems.

 

The tournament featuresd a range of team activities, including building bridges, towers, wind racers and artificial hands from everyday materials (balsa, popsticks, plastic straws, tape etc.; coding robots to move objects around obstacles or to create artworks; producing coded messages through patterns of light and simulated

communications networks.

After a very busy and exciting day Pleasant Heights Public School emerged as champions for 2017.
