GIFTED AND TALENTED EVENTS

STEM Day Out

This week a group of Year 7 students attended a STEM Day Out at UNISA. This was one of our subject enrichment days that we hold for students who have significant ability in particular subjects. STEM Day Out consisted of three STEM workshops. The Science Workshop (UniSA degree - Aviation) explored the science of air and flight, as students discovered the science behind planes and how they fly. In the Engineering Workshop, students worked in small groups to design and construct the tallest tower possible, while the Mathematical Sciences ‘Perplexing Puzzles’ workshop provided a series of fun, captivating brain-benders through which students discovered how mathematical thinking links to problem-solving.

Year 9 Critical Thinking Day

This week Year 9 Challenge Program students participated in a Critical Thinking Day ‘Da Vinci Decathlon Style’. Students worked collaboratively in groups to complete challenges in a range of disciplines such as Mathematics, English, Engineering, Drama and Code Breaking. This was a fun day requiring the groups to think critically and creatively as a team in various areas of study.
