Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics and Design from Prep through to Grade 6
At Christ Church Grammar School, we have invested in an innovative and exciting STEM program for all students from Prep through Grade 6. This program allows students to explore Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics and design in purpose-built facilities under the guidance of a specialist STEM educator. We aim to give all students access to technologies, resources, and educators traditionally available only in select Secondary Schools. These include, but are not limited to, exposure and instruction in 3D design and printing, Digital Animation in 2D and 3D, advanced multimedia production (Including Audio, Video and Still images), digital programming and coding stepping up to competitive robotics, and design and engineering that incorporates real-world technologies like 3D Virtual rendering.
In Science, we go beyond the traditional classroom practices by exploring the traditional domains but through real-world application of critical thinking skills. This provides students with a richer connection to Science and a meaningful place to practice and hone the literacy and numeracy skills they develop in their homeroom. As a school, we believe wholly in the philosophy of "inspiring hearts and igniting minds," and an innovative P-6 STEM program is just one of the many ways we do just that.
