Sacred Heart College
The College stays ahead of the curve by researching and implementing cutting-edge processes that enable better practices in the classroom for student learning and in the daily management of the school. It has transformed 22 learning spaces for 21C pedagogies, partnered with Curtin University to bring the first ever eDNA testing to a school, used robotics in underwater evidence collection projects, offered a 12K innovation scholarship for staff initiatives and enacted and tested NASA research on plants within the science classrooms. As part of the College’s STEM courses, Sacred Heart competes in robotics including FLL, FTC and RoboCup. The College is the current WA state champions in RoboCup Soccer and Maze Rescue with teams travelling to the RoboCup Australian Open (8th occasion). Two teams from the College represented Australia at the RoboCup 2019 World titles. Recent developments have also seen the use of humanoid robots to learn about AI and internet enabled devices and the design of automated vehicles that utilise Expert Systems and Machine Learning.
