LAUNCHING TIMBARRA’S STEAM CENTRE

 

We are delighted to announce that Timbarra College is building a state-of-the-art Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths (STEAM) Centre for students in Years 5-9. This marks the final stage of our building program.

Our STEAM Centre will be a unique facility that will advance the development of 21C technology centred skills.

Whilst all students will have access to our STEAM Centre, we are also adding a STEAM Academy to our current Academy programs. In 2021, Year 7 students will be able to access this Academy and over time, the Academy will expand to include Years 8 and 9.

We have a dedicated team of teachers, led by Mr Michael Molinia, who are busy planning an integrated STEAM curriculum for all students in Years 5-9 alongside the more specialised Year 7 STEAM Academy program.

To ensure that we are consistent with our program development, we have developed a shared vision and mission statement, which will be used by all teachers to guide their planning and teaching. We would like to share it with our Community

Vision statement:

Timbarra’s vision for STEAM education is to inspire students to become creative and innovative problem-solvers by integrating science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics to create solutions to real-world problems.

 

Mission statement:

Timbarra’s STEAM program will:

  • Immerse students in project-based learning.
  • Develop design-thinking, critical and creative thinking skills.
  • Encourage students to work collaboratively to solve real-world problems.
  • Integrate education in science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics.
  • Create opportunities for students to enhance learning through community partnerships.

 

We are very excited for this new addition to our Teaching and Learning program and facilities at Timbarra P-9 to further complement our programs and academies (Sport and Music).

Please feel free to contact the College if you would like further information.  Unfortunately due to COVID -19 we are unable to conduct tours at this particular time but staff are more than happy to follow up via telephone.

 

Stay safe and take care
