  3. STEAM Enhancement

Do you enjoy designing, being creative, getting involved in hands on activities and like a challenge? If so, this is the enhancement workshop for you!

Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths encourages critical thinking, intellectual inquiry, creative reflection and problem solving.

Students in the program will have access to our fabrication laboratory offering an array of flexible computer controlled tools such as a laser cutter (used for curing as well as engraving) and 3D printers. Students will work in the open space of the Design Centre with access to the array of facilities, as well as using the Science Lab.

Diversity and blending activities across subject areas are critical to the design process, so students will have access to a range of activities that will equip them for an ever changing future!

Activities will be selected based on students’ interest and input.

These hands on activities could include:

  • Designing and trouble shooting, how to make an effective water filter from minimal materials
  • Using microscopes and chemical tests to check water quality
  • Designing and creating a mouse-trap car, using the laser curator to make wheel components
  • Programming robots to follow a circuit, based on a colour sensor system
  • Designing and building a trebuchet (catapult)
  • Creating an air powered rocket
  • Creating cogs, along with other simple machines, using the laser cutter and other equipment
