UTAS STEM program engages bright minds

Posted on in Junior School

Always up for a challenge, three bright sparks in Year 5 jumped at the chance to attend the UTAS STEM School of Excellence recently for two days of hands-on learning.

Junior School Extension students, Emma Clark, Annabel Hutchinson and Lucy Kearney participated in the program on Monday 4 July and Tuesday 5 July, which was a joint initiative of Brainways Education and the university.

Lucy and Emma have this to say about the experience:

‘The STEM program was a great experience and something we will never forget. It was a challenge, but we enjoy a good challenge. We learnt about a lot of things including engines and antibiotics. We met new people and we would love to do it again in the future’.

What an amazing opportunity!
