STEM EXPO and Enterprise Fair

Joanne Anderson
Head of Design and Technology

DCB’s STEM teachers and Innovation Coaches hosted a range of STEM workshops to reignite students’ passion in STEM. Workshops ranged from 3D printing ghosts and computer game development to making music using AI. Student leaders took to the stage for the first time to lead an Esports competition and to introduce the Girls in STEMM program. Student leaders of extra curricula STEM-related activities like FRC, F1 in Schools and Deep Racer wowed their peers with demonstrations.

As always, a highlight at the STEM Expo is the offerings by external partners like Electricats who gave students the opportunity to race drones. A STEM Expo without VR games would not be complete, and this year was no different.

The Enterprise Fair saw Year 10 and 11 students showcase a wide range of products manufactured in the Design Technology Classrooms. These products ranged from interactive games like foosball to pewter- cast jewelry and 3D printed geared pumpkins. By drawing on Business Studies knowledge and skills, students conducted market research and developed pricing strategies. This year, Year 11 profits go towards funding DCB’s spray club. We look forward to what year 10 has in store for the Christmas Fair. In the true entrepreneurial spirit of FRC, DCB’s Helion team jumped at the opportunity to fundraise, stealing the show with 3D printed teacher figurines.
