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 provide the entire solution to schools, bringing the hardware, software, internet connection, lesson plans, technology devices and ‘Scopers’, our own professional and fully trained instructors. 

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. 

Outcomes

Course 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.

 

  • Australian Curriculum Design & Technologies (ACARA) outcomes ACTDEP036, ACTDEP049

  • NESA Science & Technology Curriculum outcomes SC4-1VA, SC5-1VA

  • NESA Science & Technology Curriculum outcomes 4.3.1, 4.3.2, 4.4.1, 4.2.1

Electronics

Students will explore how electronic circuits work, building several circuit boards made up of lights, switches and sensors. This is done through coding. 

Outcomes

Course 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, students will gain an inquiry into the way that electronics can function to problem solve, increasing understanding of 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

Robotics

Students will build a robotic car from parts and program it with various behaviours, controlling its movement and using sensors. 

Outcomes

Building on the knowledge gained in the Electronics course, 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.

 

  • Australian Curriculum Design & Technologies (ACARA) outcomes ACTDIP029, ACTDIP038, ACTDEK031

  • NESA Science & Technology Curriculum outcomes SC4-10PW, SC5-11PW, SC5-10PW, SC4-6WS, SC5-6WS, SC4-1VA, SC5-1VA.

4 reasons schools MUST start now with digital technologies learning: 

  1. 47% of jobs are up for technological displacement.1

  2. A third of Australian 15 year olds have low proficiency in digital literacy in international testing by PISA.2 

  3. The demand for digital literacy in jobs has increased by 212% as observed in early career job ads over the past 3 years.2 

  4. The OECD has found that Australian students have a significantly less positive attitude towards computers than on average across the OECD.3
