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
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.
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
