Year 7 students furthered their problem solving and STEM skills during their annual Design Thinking Day.
Tasked with a brief to ‘design a better zoo’, Year 7 students applied Design Thinking skills to observe, develop and build prototypes. They drew on research conducted at Taronga Zoo earlier this term, to help inform their new designs and ideas.
The two-day exercise resulted in a number of creative designs, which were judged in various categories by representatives from the University of New South Wales (UNSW) and Taronga Zoo.
The girls had a fantastic time applying their research, engaging with their brief and creating solutions.
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.
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.
Most of us have had the pleasure of playing Putt-Putt (or mini golf), but unlike our Year 7 Science students, not many of us have designed an actual course.
