It isn't everyday that the Wenona Undercroft is turned into a car garage display. But in Term 2, the annual STEM Transport Showcase unveiled more than a range of old and new cars. This year's line up hosted solar racers, robots and a light air craft!
For the third year running, Head of STEM Mr Andy Draper organised the showcase for students to uncover the science and engineering behind the bonnets.
"The enthusiasm for machines is infectious," Mr Draper said. "This is reflected in our students' interest in so many of the visiting vehicles from the past couple of years."
The girls were mesmerised by the gizmos and gadgets, and learned about how solar energy is obtained to power the electric competition vehicles known as solar racers.
This week, Dr Thompson’s Year 9 STEM class had a chance to fly their own custom designed drones, after using 3D printers to develop and perfect their prototypes.
Our Year 6 students were bursting with energy and excitement this week as they programmed robots and created interactive games based on Louis Sachar’s book, Holes!
Wenona enjoyed an incredible day of interdisciplinary learning on Thursday, with students using their ‘big picture thinking’ to make the most of STEM Day 2019.
