In 2016, Melbourne Girls’ College initiated an innovative S.T.E.A.M program. This program is designed to promote Science, Technologies, Engineering, The Arts and Mathematics across the school and as a career pathway. It also provides opportunities to develop the skills and knowledge our world requires in the 21st Century. Critical thinking, collaborative and communication skills and creativity are considered vital skills in the modern workforce.
Students participate in programs involving computer coding, robotics, 3D printing and drawing, green screen technology, virtual reality experiences and electronics. They are encouraged to participate in competitions and events with a S.T.E.A.M-theme.
Some of the activities our students participate in are; robot dancing competitions, 3D printing challenges, designing experiments for the International Space Station, designing a Mars settlement, coding competitions and industry talks.
We are also delighted to be taking students to a Space Camp at Kennedy Space Centre in Orlando, Florida in 2017.
