STEM enrichment academy days
During the year, eight enrichment days will focus on a range of real science areas covering topics such as physics, chemistry, biology and medical technologies.
There will also be a 4-part design and technology enrichment experience. This offering requires a commitment from both the school and identified students to participate one day per term, as all the students will be designing and making a wearable device over the course of the year.
STEM enrichment intensive days
In the last week of term 2, a three-day intensive program will provide students with a range of enrichment workshops, industry visits and a practical field trip. The program will be offered at Bedford Park campus for two days and based out of the Tonsley campus on the third day for the industry visits and the field trip.
Whilst the intensive program is open to all schools, Flinders particularity encourages rural students to participate in this intensive.
STEM enrichment teacher professional development days
Enhance your teaching skills by participating in one of our professional development workshops. Focusing on current STEM research and education, workshops involve a key note address from a Flinders STEM academic about their research area and take part in a hands-on exercise, for you to share with your classroom.
