STEM experiences

Our school runs STEM experiences in the school holidays. Sessions were held at our St Raphael’s School in Parkside and were facilitated by our Specialist Numeracy/ STEM Leader Ms Deborah Hansen.

Children and their parents were invited to ‘Flex their thinking’ as they solved problems and found solutions to STEM challenges using robotics, engineering and construction.
