On Tuesday 8 October we held our Year 7 STEM showcasing assembly, with the Mayor of Manningham Cr Paula Piccinini in attendance on the judging panel. Also present were parents of the students from the 9 finalist teams. All 9 presentations and prototypes amazed us with their level of skill and ingenuity.
Congratulations to the winning two teams on their winning projects:
· Airplate Cyclist Protection by Ethan Robertson, Joshua Donohue and Conor Skaliotis
· Plastic Digestion using meal worms by Oliver Runting, Pearce Phillips and Lukas Burton
Both teams presented at STEM M.A.D conference on 9 October with the Airplate Prototype receiving a prize for outstanding STEM innovation from Immersive Education.
Below is a reflection from Ethan, Joshua and Conor on the experience:
“STEM has been a project involving various subjects and has allowed our group to pick something of real interest to us. Together we came up with the idea of the AirPlate, which keeps bike riders safe from motor vehicles. Through researching how the Airplate might work we have incorporated different streams of thinking to achieve a product that could possibly be of benefit to local community or even globally.”
