Words from the Director
10 May 2021

We are now well into term 2 and hopefully students in our partner schools are starting to enjoy returning to the routines of school life. We are certainly seeing evidence of this at BNTS with school bookings beginning to increase and more and more students filling our spaces. It is wonderful to hear the sounds of students again and to see them engaged in our programs.

Over the last fortnight we have seen students from Bundoora Secondary college participating in both the Introduction to Entrepreneurship and Autocrops Design challenge. We have also seen students from Concord each week for their design challenge and Tech School experience sessions. Our “The Lab @ Greensborough” is also fully attended with participants undertaking a “Marble run” design challenge. We are looking forward to seeing the results of this challenge.

The Design Club has kicked off to a terrific start with students coming after school weekly to take a deep dive into Vector graphics software Adobe Illustrator.

Keep your eyes open for interesting professional learning opportunities for teachers.
