Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) touch every aspect of today's world— the inventions that emerge from these fields underpin the global economy and impact upon our everyday life. Our aim is to ensure that we prepare every student to take advantage of the many opportunities in these fields so that they may become the entrepreneurs of tomorrow. In this innovative course, we harness a passion for change and innovation by engaging students in challenging activities that allow them to develop as problem solvers and critical and creative thinkers.
We aim to provide students with real-world challenges and problems to solve within the curriculum context, as well as chances to compete in elite competitions outside the schooling environment, including:
- · F1 in Schools
- · Subs in Schools
- · Optiminds
- · Griffith Science Engineering Challenge
- · UAV Challenge
- · Griffith STEM CUP
- · RoboCUP and
- · Premier's Creating Queensland's Future Coding Competition
To fulfil our aim, students have multiple and varied experiences within the areas of STEM. Our Year 7 & 8 Excellence Program compliments the current Australian Curriculum (ACARA) with project-based learning and inspires top performing primary students to apply to the school; further, National Curriculum is running in Digital and Design Technology from Years 7 – 10. In addition to our brilliant curriculum opportunities and extracurricular activities, Coding and Robotics are also offered as lunchtime clubs.
