WHITSUNDAY ANGLICAN SCHOOL
Whitsunday Anglican School promotes a culture of excellence in the STEM field, aiming to provide students with cutting-edge and industry-ready skills. In 2018, the school established a STEM elective and developed some exciting educational experiences. Currently, the STEM elective is being taught from Years 5 to 8; it will be expanded to Year 9 in 2019 and Year 10 in 2020. As part of the elective, students participate in the CoDrone Educational Program, which was built in-house. Students plan and code a search-and-rescue mission using the CoDrone unmanned aerial vehicle. The CoDrone Rescue Challenge has been featured on 7 News Mackay.
