Extend your students’ participation and enthusiasm in STEM, with our after-school STEM Club!
The Tinker and Create stream encourages design thinking through creative projects. From building simple machines to designing gliders and wearable technology there’s something for every student in this engaging and challenging program. Choose between Electrical Circuits, or Take to the Skies and Motion and Energy to elevate student learning capabilities in your classroom.
Electrifying Circuits (8 weeks)
Get to grips with the fundamentals of electricity and learn about e-Textiles by sewing your own light-up artwork with Lilypad components.
Motion and Energy (8 weeks)
Harness the power of potential energy and defy gravity through the construction of a rubber band powered flying machine. Students will create rubber band driven potential energy vehicles, including a rubber band powered aircraft, investigating forces and planning, testing and refining their original designs.
Parents and families are invited to attend the final session to allow students to share and celebrate their accomplishments. The projects will be stored at the school while students are building them, with students taking their projects home at the end of the module.
8 weeks – choose between 60-minute sessions, or 90-minute sessions with afternoon tea.
