Santa brings Christmas cheer to Fiona Stanley Hospital
SCITECH’S Science After School Stem Club trial at Applecross Primary School is coming to a close.
The Scitech program has been running since 2004 and has expanded from four weeks to 16, being renamed Tinker and Create, with a focus on creative problem solving through design and construction activities.
Year 4 and 5 students looked at automation, flight, electrical energy and more during the trial in terms 3 and 4.
School science coordinator Vanessa Mann said the program gave the school a chance to integrate more into the curriculum.
“We selected 20 engaged students and encouraged them to explore and work as a team to solve real-life problems,” she said.
“I think the students really enjoyed the problemsolving aspect of the program.
Tinker and Create will be rolled out in schools across Perth in 2019.
