SCIENCE has opened students’ eyes to the worlds of technology, engineering and maths at North Cottesloe Primary School.
The years 4 to 6 students’ 16-week, after school STEM Club is an updated version of Scitech’s Science After School running since 2004.
Children spent the last term designing projects and Scitech chief executive Kalien Selby said the club allowed students to go deeper into the concepts behind each of their designs.
They were encouraged to learn by modifying the projects, including wearable technology, model gliders and rubber band-powered machines.
“I really enjoyed the digital and technology projects and that she would love to do more of these,” Year 4 student Chloe Twort said.
Her school will participate in both the club’s tinker and create, and robotics and technology streams in 2021.
Children are also enjoying STEM subjects at Wembley Primary School, which has been named one of WA’s best for science,
