STEAM

What is STEAM?

Fairhills High School has a rich Science, Technology & Mathematics curriculum which all students experience. We offer a broad range of interesting subjects and programs that are tailored to enhance and support the national curriculum’s science and maths syllabuses through practical application and experimentation.

 

It is further enhanced by our Specialised STEAM program  giving students additional, in-depth opportunities to be involved in STEAM activities.

 

Fairhills places a high emphasis on learning concepts through hands on experimentation, where our science and technology classes are rich in practical experiences with students learning concepts whilst gaining valuable skills.

Fairhills STEAM Program

Developing students interests in Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics.
 

 

Fairhills has a strong focus on the STEAM fields. Based on a rich Science & mathematics curriculum which all students have a chance to participate in the STEAM Program is a further education in areas of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics. This is offered through both core and electives which build on and expand the core curriculum in a project focused and entertaining format.

 

Fairhills places a high emphasis on learning concepts through hands on experimentation and with our partners at KIOSC (Knox Innovation, Opportunity and Sustainability Centre) students who join the STEAM Program can look forward to going beyond the basic curriculum to look at what is an interest to them.

Who can join the STEAM Program?

The STEAM Program is for students interested in Science and Technology and/or those thinking about a career in Science, Technology, Engineering or Mathematics. Enrolments into the Program are accepted on an ongoing basis throughout the year through an application process.

 

 

We try to accept all students who have a genuine passion in STEAM. Students that are enrolled for an ongoing period will get recognition for their service. Students who are passionate and interested in any aspect of STEAM are encouraged to apply.

Benefits of the STEAM Program?

The STEAM Program is run by the Director of the Program, Gregory Baker, a passionate teacher with experience within STEAM fields and a drive to make the Program as effective and engaging as it can be. To achieve best results Mr. Baker will be collaborating with the Science, Mathematics, Technology and Arts faculties to ensure students have access to the very best available to the school. All Year 7 Students will be able to have a taste of Engineering with an elective focused on Programming and Robotics which can be continued if desired in ongoing years. STEAM Program Workshops will focus on Projects that the students can work together in Cross-Curricular groups from year 7 to year 10 and after school robotics classes are held at KIOSC.
