The Success with Systems Engineering teacher masterclass was a pilot program and partnership between DATTA Vic and Banyule Nillumbik Tech School which was supported by Google through their Educator Professional Development Grant. Over 10 teachers from across Victoria were selected to take part. The program focused on the essential skills and knowledge needed to grow Systems Engineering in schools and how to attract and retain a more diverse student cohort into the subject. The week’s masterclasses were facilitated by Colin Chapman and BNTS’s Anthony Gasson.
[Anthony and Colin’s] teamwork, preparation, enthusiasm and approach has made teaching this subject less daunting and more realistic.
