The Challenge Day provides an opportunity for students to further develop and apply their critical and creative thinking skills to a relevant, real world problem. Students who have a particular interest in the STEM subjects and have demonstrated a keenness in learning through exploration, in collaborative groups and/or hands-on experience would be well suited to the event.
Students will work in teams of 4 students towards understanding and innovating to solve the problem. Engagement with the problem will foster the development of students’ creativity, communication, critical thinking and collaboration skills as well as developing students’ sense of character and communication. At the conclusion of the day, teams will be encouraged to communicate their process towards their solution with their peers and invited to present their final solutions to guest judges on the day.
Time: 9am to 3.30pm
Cost: $30 per student plus $0.50 booking fee – includes morning tea and lunch
