Science hub ignites creativity
PRIMARY school students at Iona Presentation College can now learn about programming robots, coding apps and electronic circuitry in the school’s new Makerspace.
The Makerspace program aims to spark students’ interest in science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics.
Information and communication technology teacher Michael Graffin and school librarian Susan Martino are leading the initiative, with support from specialist teachers.
Acting principal Jennifer Anderson said the program would ignite the imagination of students.
“The Makerspace promises to become a hub of creativity, imagination and wonder, providing students with the opportunity and space to pursue their emerging interests in robotics, design and engineering projects,” Ms Anderson said.
