It was an exciting day for the students of Arcadia Valley State School when, thanks to Santos’ support, STEM Punks Educator Damien paid a visit to host a fun and educational STEM experience like no other.
Students ranging from Prep to Year 6 explored various activities including designing vehicles, building Arcadia Valley 2.0 using Minecraft and learning about town planning. All activities inspired the students to draw their concepts on paper, before bringing them to life virtually on iPads – an immersive experience that enabled creative, innovative and entrepreneurial mindsets to flourish.
Overall it was a great day and very inspiring to see what the children could create and design. With science, technology, engineering, and maths playing a big part in jobs of the future, it is more important than ever for students to learn skills and foster an interest in innovation and problem solving.
We also provided a yummy BBQ for the students, with food sourced from our nearby camp.
At Santos, we are proud to partner with STEM Punks and bring award-winning learning opportunities like these to regional schools in the areas where we operate.
