At Mt Warren Park State School, we are keen to engage students in a range of STEM learning experiences that provide students with opportunities to develop their collaboration, design and problem solving skills. Our students have access to a range of opportunities including:
Lego lab for years 3 and 4
Lego Lab is a weekly, before school, activity where students explore Lego robotics using the WeDo2.0. Lego Lab provides an opportunity for students to develop basic construction and coding skills in a friendly, fun environment. Lego Lab is held each Friday morning at 8am in the hall foyer. Please see Mr Rhys Noy (firstname.lastname@example.org) for further information regarding this club.
Lego club for years 5 and 6
Held after school, Lego Club is a great way for students with an interest in robotics to extend their coding, problem solving and collaboration skills. Students use the Mindstorm EV3 robots in these sessions. Lego Club is held each Monday afternoon from 3pm-4pm in the hall foyer. Please see Mr Rhys Noy (email@example.com) for further information regarding this club.
ICAS competitions for English and Mathematics
Each year students at Mt Warren Park SS are offered the opportunity to participate in the annual University of NSW ICAS Competitions. Students currently have the option of participating in the English or Mathematics competitions.
Mt Warren Park State School students participate in a range of STEM activities with other schools that allow our students to challenge themselves with their learning. These include:
- Clict on Games - students in Year 6 create arcade style games including full cabinetry and coding of the program
- iCreate Challenge - a team of Year 4 students are working collaboratively with Beenleigh State School students to use LittleBits to solve real world design challenges
- Participation in interschool STEM challenges and culmination days
- STEM Days of Excellence - as part of our partnership with Windaroo Valley State High School, students in Year 5 participate in high interest Science and STEM workshops throughout the year.
Our School Chaplain hosts a Monday Morning Breakfast Club each week of term. Children are able to come along at 8.15am with their parents and all other students at 8.30am. There is a wide range for students to choose from. Toast, raisin toast, baked beans (winter), fruit, milo and cereal.
