Friday 18th August, several TAS students from Yr 7, 9 and 10 were part of the CSIRO initiative to celebrate National Science Week in our school library. The CSIRO conducted a webinar with 6 notable space scientists talking about their work as scientists in a variety of space related fields. It was impressive that 3 of these scientists were women with the young Ms Solange Cunin really grabbing the students’ attention. She is the co-founder of Cuberider and coordinated several schools sending their science experiments into space this week.
Following this was a wonderful display of the STEM related activities our students are studying. The TAS faculty provides a wonderful opportunity for robotics and programming. Many of Mr Walker and Mr Petreski’s students capably entertained Mr Stephen Jones MP, the federal member for Whitlam. It was a wonderful showcase of engaged students working collaboratively, problem solving and coding.
