Charles’ idea makes the cut
THERE is no doubt that technology is changing the employment landscape.
As a result, the Powerhouse Museum launched a program called STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics) last year which looks at how students can learn more about these fields and pursue exciting careers.
STEAM offers learning programs that are aligned with school curriculums and focus on creativity and inno- vation with hands-on learning experiences. It also features interactive screenbased lessons, led by MAAS curators, educators and guest experts.
Regular exhibitions form part of the program.
Currently on display is an exhibition titled Shape 2016 featuring works from three design areas – design and technology, textiles and design and industrial technology by 36 HSC graduates from last year.
Shape 2016 is on until May 7,
