STEM – Science Engineering Program

PROGRAMS

Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) elective

The STEM elective can be selected by students entering Year 7 and can be continued as an elective in Years 8 to 10.

The program is aimed at academically able students, and involves exciting, challenging and hands-on, problem-solving based challenges, mapped to the Design and Technology Curriculum and Achievement Standards, and supported with university links and the School Pathways Program.  Examples include:

  • structural engineering challenges
  • environmental problem-solving
  • computer programming
  • robotics and electronics

Each underpinned by the processes of research and collaboration, design, building, testing and redesign that characterise the iterative engineering process.

Opportunities to participate in external competitions such as the Re-Engineering Australia Subs in Schools Program, the Solar Car Challenge and the Aurecon Bridge Building Competition are embedded within the program structure.
