BURNSIDE PRIMARY SCHOOL
This year, Burnside Primary School’s Year 2 students have undertaken a Unit of Inquiry in which open-ended collaboration has been embraced for the purpose of brainstorming problems at individual, school and community level, and devising solutions to identified problems. One student, who suffers from PKU, designed a 3D-printed protein catcher that would enable him to eat meat. Another student, who has mild Cerebral Palsy, designed a flexible gripper that enables people who have Cerebral Palsy to be able to grab properly. These examples are indicative of Burnside students’ innovative, creative and critical thinking about problems affecting the wider community.
