On Wednesday, our Year 7 students were tasked with a project to design a Year 7 sustainable building, a STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics) challenge they thoroughly enjoyed. This blended learning environment focusing on real-world applications of problem solving provided a platform to extend many 21st century skills. Students collaborated and effectively communicated in teams to deliver innovative, creative, research-based enterprises that were amazing. The students also demonstrated leadership and flexibility when reflecting and evaluating their final project design.
The Year 7 classrooms were filled with busy laughter in order to complete their task as the winning homeroom. Our Year 7 students created colourful rooms for mental health, waste hubs, roof top gardens, energy efficient appliances and insulated walls from recycled materials.
Ms Volp had the very difficult decision to announce a winning homeroom, congratulations 7B.
