STEAM Club

4/03/2016
​STEAM Club had their first session on Monday with students creating their very own volcanoes

Centenary SHS welcomes STEAM Club

An exciting new afterschool program called STEAM Club has begun at Centenary SHS for Years 7, 8 and 9 students.

STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) club allows students to explore, investigate and discover STEAM subjects in a stimulating learning environment, away from the constraints of the school timetable or a prescribed curriculum. This allows us to work together and explore many different ideas and activities.

Examples of different activities that are being done in the program include:

Creating a Volcano - Students will learn all about volcanoes and chemical reactions. They will build their own safe and nontoxic volcano with items from around the house - baking soda and vinegar.

Dusting for Fingerprints - Students will learn how to dust for fingerprints. This will allow the students to understand the importance of fingerprint classification. By taking fingerprints and making observations, students will follow the scientific method to devise a fingerprint classification system.

Creating a Lava Lamp - Students will learn about the concepts of density, polarity, and chemical reactions while creating a lava lamp.
 

If you think your student might be interested in joining the program, or if you would like more information, please contact Mr Jack Dahms, program co-ordinator, via email at jjdah0@eq.edu.au.
