Salisbury East HS
In 2019, Salisbury East High School began developing a project-based STEAM program, wherein students constructed custom arcade machines. Students worked in separate teams (construction, technology and art) to complete the shared project. Students were not provided with instructions manuals for any portion of the build, rather they needed to demonstrate their intuition, communication and research skills to create a custom project. Since the program was introduced, 100% of students involved have obtained their license (11 total). Salisbury East Alternative Programs can provide students with SACE completion, with 100% Year 12s achieving SACE Stage 2 subjects were introduced 2017 (15 students total, 7 pending). This program has assisted close to 20 schools, and the South Australian and Tasmanian Department for Education in starting on-site initiatives to better connect students with a schooling environment, to increase student wellbeing and educational outcomes.
