STEM skills on display at Corrimal High School

On Wednesday 27 July 2016, Year 9 and 10 students from Corrimal High's STEM class competed in the Illawarra and South East Region University of Wollongong Science and Engineering challenge.

The challenge saw students from local high schools working in groups compete across eight different science and engineering challenges. 

The Corrimal High School STEM Teacher's Mr Mulder and Mr Wong, said the students showed strong problem solving abilities and persistence when faced with new challenges.

Other quotes on the day included:

  • "Their ability to collaborate as a team worked strongly in their favour."
  • "It was very impressive to see the persistence the students demonstrated when faced with the challenges of improving their prototypes"
  • "It was clear that the students demonstrated exceptionally strong problem solving abilities, which are necessary in the field of STEM,"

STEM and the science and enrichment programs offered by Corrimal High are a great opportunity for us to further develop students' understanding and experience. Opportunities like these are extremely valuable for students as they open up pathways to university and STEM related careers.
