STEM through play: St Stephens Primary School

Thank you to the wonderful staff and brilliant grade 3/4 students at St Stephens Primary School for allowing me, Lisa and Susan to run a simple STEM workshop. We demonstrated what we hope to do at Reservoir Neighbourhood House if we are successful in our funding application for the Victorian government’s pickmyproject initiative. The projects with the most votes will get the funding so please help by voting for us:

You can only vote if you select Reservoir, 3073 or neighbouring suburbs as your area.

Simple and inexpensive resources comprise discarded electronics, toys, and basic tools. No expensive, off the shelf gadgets, no restrictive procedures, simply safety and fun. 20180905_114046
