In January, just before the return to school, the Tech Schools will be running three on-line STEM camps! The Lab STEM camp for rural and regional kids is making a come back after a very successful first session last school holidays. We are also very excited to introduce two new STEM camps for Girls. Check the details below for each camp, and don’t forget to enroll via the link below!
These are free online camps funded by the Victorian Department of Education and Training, specifically for young people in Rural and Regional Locations not partnered to a Tech School.
GIRLS DESIGNING FOR WILDLIFE
21 & 22 January 2021
As a result of the black summer fires and the ongoing impacts of climate change, our unique wildlife species are increasingly finding themselves with limited access to essential resources.
This program seeks to teach students about the basic requirements for sustaining wildlife in the face of these challenges. Students will learn about the trials of designing for wildlife and the difficulty of replicating natural systems using man made materials.
This two day program supports to design prototypes that might help solve these real world problems.
Students will learn about the wildlife in their local area using geospatial data, skill up in 3D modelling and explore basic coding for microcontrollers.
