Term One in iSTEM will see Year 9 students working on developing working Scientifically Skill with ASTE renewable energy kits to solve problems relating to electric circuitry and solar power.
The year 10 elective class has just completed testing their CO2 Dragster cars what a blast. (literally). The project has seen students design a Dragster from scratch, create a polystrofoam prototype that was tested in a wind tunnel. They then refined their designs based of their testing, and then moved towards crafting their balsa wood dragster, painting in team colours and then competing against others to find the fastest and best design. Sometimes accidents happen all part of learning process.
This term will see the class delve into the world of motion and engineering related to Bottle rockets. We will also be exploring the Engineering and Science concepts behind the rides at Luna Park.
