STEM Day Out

For: Year 7 or Year 8 students with an aptitude for mathematics

Description

STEM Day Out engages students in a rotation of STEM workshops focussing on the science of flight, puzzling mathematics and the engineering design process.  

What will students do?

Students will explore the science of air – how it moves, how strong it is, and some of the amazing ways it behaves. They will apply this and discover what this has to do with planes while making your own plane wing.

Students will discover why puzzles are fundamental to mathematic thinking and explore how mathematical thinking links to problem solving.

Students will design and construct an object within set parameters using limited materials while developing their collaborative working, communication and time management skills.

Conditions

  • Classes will rotate through the three workshops.
  • As the program is a practical activity, students will be required to wear closed in footwear.
  • Duty of care for students will be retained by the classroom teacher.
