Last Friday 8th March St Therese Catholic Primary school launched their Maker Space as part of Catholic Schools Week celebrations.
The space is designed to allow the students of St Therese to engage in STEM activities both as part of their in class learning and during lunch time workshops.
The space incorporates our school Spheros, MBots and Vex robots as well as construction tools and materials.
A tired looking basement has been transformed by Mrs Jenny Jancetic into a vibrant and engaging space.
Currently informal robotics experiences are being run at lunchtime alongside teachers accessing the space to support the Science Curriculum.
Starting in term 2 there will be formalised lunchtime workshops that the students may choose to participate in.
We are grateful for the support of the Australian Federal Government and their Makerspace Grant Program as well as Mr Ben Woods from the CEO who has helped make our vision come alive. Mrs Jenny Jancetic has done an amazing job as our artistic director. We are looking forward to using the space and engaging in STEM.
