"It is all about learning outcomes"
“This was an excellent opportunity for our staff. STEM Punks provided information in easily accessible formats and was able to offer something to everyone, from novice coder to those with some experience of more complicated coding platforms. Everyone was thoroughly engaged and it has provided momentum for revisiting digital technologies and how to make it an important part of our curriculum from the early years into secondary. Drones for use in agriculture was a great ‘hook’ in our community."
Jenny Kent - Principal Millmerran State P-10 School
“Grace Lutheran College recently worked with STEM Punks for our Bright Minds Festival, a 2 day event for primary school students. STEM Punks ran a Drone Flying Workshop and a Robotics Workshop - both of which were outstanding. The student feedback about their workshops was terrific! The team from STEM Punks was very organised and professional in both their preparations for our workshops and in their execution on the day. The STEM Punks team has a wealth of knowledge to share with students and does this in a way that is not only engaging, but challenges students’ thinking and encourages innovation. I highly recommend the team at STEM Punks.”
Leigh-Ann Forman - Academic Enrichment Coordinator Grace Lutheran College
“The STEM program that was specifically developed for us enabled students to experience a wide range of these different skills and also connected them all together in an engaging and supportive environment. The students showed a keen interest in the use of drones and their programming which also included the design and 3D printing of a particular part of the machine. Due to the nature of the program, students were able to participate in hands on activities that developed an understanding and practical application of skills through creativity and innovative thinking. Led by an excellent presenter, the aim of the STEM program as envisioned by the school has allowed students to see just how closely linked these concepts are in a variety of real-world situations.”
