HIGH SCHOOL INCURSIONS
WORKSHOPS IN 3D PRINTING & DESIGN, ELECTRONICS AND ROBOTICS
ScopeIT Education’s one-day workshops create an exciting learning space to get stuck into some digital literacy concepts for high school students.
Whether your students have commenced their digital technology education or not, we have a series of flexible one-day workshops that will get your students enthused about the possibilities of technology.
WE BRING YOUR ALL INCLUSIVE, IN-SCHOOL SETUP:
MACBOOK AIR® LAPTOPS
STRUCTURED LESSON PLANS
3D PRINTING & DESIGN
Students will take their 3D design from a digital concept to a tangible 3D printed object. All students take away a 3D printed head phone spool.
Participants will develop competence in the development of design projects using a range of tools. Through this process, students will gain an understanding of the impact of innovation and emerging technologies on society and the environment. Using a process of scientific enquiry and creative design, students will develop their concepts through a process of testing and communication. They will gain skills in graphical representation techniques and will apply design thinking, creativity and innovation to refine their projects.
Students will explore how electronic circuits work, building several circuit boards made up of lights, switches and sensors. This is done through coding.
Participants will develop a scientific understanding of electronics and their function in society. They will gain an appreciation for energy transferral and conservation. Students will follow a sequence of instructions to safely undertake a range of investigation types, collaboratively and individually. Using investigation and data collection techniques, students will gain an insight into how electronics function in the world around them.
Australian Curriculum Design & Technologies (ACARA) outcomes ACTDIP038
NESA Science & Technology Curriculum outcomes SC5-11PW, SC4-6WS, SC5-6WS, SC4-7WS, SC4-1VA, SC5-1VA
Students will build a robotic car from parts and program it with various behaviours, controlling its movement and using sensors.
Building on the knowledge gained in the Electronics workshop, participants will learn to apply models to understand energy, force and motion. Students will follow a sequence of instructions to safely undertake a range of investigation types, define and decompose real-world problems in a process of teamwork. They will analyse how motion, force and energy are used to manipulate and control electromechanical systems.
We have a vision that any child, going through Kindy to Year 6, graduates with the ability to code, develop robotics and to create web pages.
