St Joseph’s School, Coraki, has received a Media School Grant to help students gain more access to practical subject resources, Federal Member for Page, Kevin Hogan said.
“Today I announced a Grant that will give the students of St Joseph’s a hands-on experience to their learning,” he said.
“The Grant will go towards teaching Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) subjects by setting up a Maker Space.
“The Maker Space is a practical area where students can use materials and develop creative projects.
“It promotes learning through play to enhance their STEM knowledge.”
Teacher Sophie Taylor wrote the application for the Grant and is very excited to see the students receiving this opportunity.
“The Maker Space will equip the students with the STEM skills required to solve real-world problems beyond the classroom,” she said.
“It will be open to all classes and will be used at lunchtime to provide an alternate play option.
“For the Maker Space we will be buying objects ranging from basic robotics, construction kits to hot glue guns and modelling clay.”
