Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics at Ocean View College B-12 aims to provide students with an appreciation of the usefulness, power and beauty of the subjects. STEM allows students an opportunity to explore a combination of both scientific and mathematical concepts as outlined by the Australian Curriculum. Through an investigative project-based approach, STEM connects emerging technologies to real world scenarios. This course will focus on team building, project management and business development skills that will assist them as they move throughout high school and into their future careers.
Examples of tasks/topics
Students will respond to challenges that require application of scientific, mathematical and technological skills and knowledge to real-life challenges. The development of tasks and topics will be ongoing and flexible to cater to a diverse range of student capabilities. Wherever possible, students will utilise advanced technologies, such as 3D printing and laser cutting.
