BLACKWOOD HIGH SCHOOL
Eden Hills, SA
The forces of digital disruption and globalisation will have a major impact on work over the next 15 years, making it a necessity for today’s students to have highly developed skills and a strong knowledge base in STEM disciplines. In an effort to address this challenge, Blackwood High School introduced a two-year scientific studies program in 2017 as one of its first initiatives in a broader whole-school STEM strategy. The program is focused on helping students develop key skills via a project-based learning approach to analyse and solve problems, which will aid their capacity to acquire new knowledge through their own investigations.
