TRIN­ITY Col­lege has a strong cul­ture of nur­tur­ing and de­vel­op­ing young men and is con­tin­u­ally look­ing to evolve its learn­ing en­vi­ron­ment to cater for the dif­fer­ent ways in which boys learn.

This year, the col­lege is putting a big fo­cus on Stem (sci­ence, tech­nol­ogy, engi­neer­ing, math­e­mat­ics) learn­ing in the Ju­nior School.

Maths and cod­ing teacher Paul Presser said he be­lieved Stem education was nec­es­sary for all stu­dents.

“Ed­u­cat­ing stu­dents in Stem sub­jects pre­pares them for life, re­gard­less of the pro­fes­sion they choose to fol­low,” he said.

“Th­ese sub­jects teach stu­dents how to think crit­i­cally and how to solve prob­lems – skills that can be used through­out life.”

In the re­cently opened Stem Learn­ing Zone, stu­dents de­velop skills needed for the 21st cen­tury in a fo­cused, specif­i­cally de­signed space, com­plete with a cod­ing class­room, maker space, me­dia green wall, lab­o­ra­tory fa­cil­i­ties and a va­ri­ety of new tech­nolo­gies, in­clud­ing robotics, vir­tual re­al­ity and video con­fer­enc­ing.
