Our College sent some of our Year 10 students to Casey Tech in Berwick to work with other schools on some very big problems. Our students had access to cutting edge learning hosted by Chisholm institute at its Berwick Campus. Students will develop skills in Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics (STEAM). The students had to learn about and employ skills in creativity, problem solving, team work, critical thinking, digital literacy, financial, communications, presentation skills, confidence and resilience. These are the skills required in the 21st century.
Our group worked amongst other schools from the Casey area to provide a safety solution for the Casey community. The excursion was also attended by Mr Leopold, Ms Rice and Ms Kashyap who found the work of the students very engaging. This was an innovative education program that will assist our school in planning for similar hands on programs in the future.
