Event description

Description

Much has been said about the need for the Australian educational system to provide engaging STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) content. The STEAM Pop-Up space combines fun filled experiential learning activities around technology which align with curriculum objectives and encourage students to develop entrepreneurial skills.

STEAM POP-UP SPACE (10:00 - 14:00)

Students with a passion for all things science & technology will get a chance to observe a drone flying demonstration by CSIRO accredited staff that do cool tricks, interact with robots, test out the latest in Virtual Reality, make working LED lamps, print their own 3D objects and learn to code their own iPhone app, emoticon or chat bot and more.

PLUS the option to join in one of our morning or afternoon CODING sessions (please register for both the STEAM and Coding sessions to add this to your day)

CODING SESSIONS

Two alternate 90 minute sessions – morning (10:30 - 12:00) and afternoon (12:30 - 14:00)

The 90-minute classes are suitable for first-timers who have never coded (who will get to code an emoticon, a chatbot or flags around the world), to those who want to build something just a little more complex like an app. The app will then be sent to the school afterwards for the children to download.


Students will need to bring their own Morning Tea and Lunch


When registering, please register 1 ticket per school per day.

Please then email us at sparkfestivaleducation@gmail.com indicating how many students will attend

If you have any questions about whether this is suitable for your students, please call Liz Jakubowski from Ribit, Data61, CSIRO on 0472836623

(MAXIMUM OF 25 STUDENTS PER SCHOOL)
