STEM at St Dominic’s
This term has seen our Inaugural Code Club formed (led by Mrs Walsh), these committed students are developing their skills and knowledge in programming which will be invaluable to them in their futures. Year 9 2019 will see the College delivering the iSTEM elective course for the first time and over 30 students who have performed to an outstanding level in Mathematics, Science and TAS have been invited to be part of this exciting opportunity. All Year 8 students may still select this course and further discussions associated to their commitment in these learning areas will be considered. This course will see the students participating in state wide, nation wide and global competitions.
Your son has access to the entire Clickview library to assist him with his studies and in developing a deeper understanding of concepts and improved skills. Like many popular streaming services content can be downloaded and watched when it suits him. Our teachers are regularly developing playlists to assist your son but he can access so much more as he needs it. He can review a movie clip he has been studying in class, watch a dramatic recreation of a play, access step by step mathematical instructions, review chemical experiments…the list is endless. If you see your son on YouTube redirect him to Clickview.
