Students in iSTEM are showing amazing ingenuity this Term as Newcastle Grammar School launches its newest elective for Years 9 and 10.
This Term, Students have worked collaboratively to undertake a series of engineering challenges especially designed to push them to their creative best.
Individual challenges included designing and constructing:
- A moving vehicle made entirely of pasta.
- A race track designed to slow the decent of a glass marble from a height of two metres.
- An electronic soccer game made from a pizza box, motors and batteries.
- Invisible ink for writing covert messages.
- A solar cooker calibrated to effectively cook a sausage.
STEM is a NESA approved course in direct response to industry’s urgent demand for young people qualified in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths. We look forward to seeing the continued development of our future inventors.
