BURWOOD GIRLS HIGH SCHOOL
For 10 weeks, Burwood Girls High School ran an integrated STEAM project that saw students designing and constructing interactive light installations. All 157 Year 8 students participated in the iLumin8 STEAM project, alongside several maths and science teachers and subject experts from Sydney University and UTS STEAMpop. The installations were interactive and constructed of simple materials such as paper and wire. The project saw many teachers acquire new skills and, additionally, pre- and post-project surveys strongly indicated a significant positive change in student engagement with, attitudes to and confidence in STEAM subject areas and related careers.
