Year 7 'Save My Water' Sustainability Challenge
We are excited to announce that during Term 3 at Christian College, all Year 7 students will be involved in a dynamic cross faculty unit titled "Save my Water". They will work in small teams across classes to develop a collaborative response to their core study of Sustainability to extend the knowledge acquired in their subject areas. Their final product develops their digital coding skills using game making technology. This innovative approach draws on 21st Century teaching research and provides students the opportunity of entering the ACER Australian STEM Video Game Challenge when they progress through the unit at an advanced level. The Australian STEM Video Game Challenge is using video games to engage students in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM learning) in new and exciting ways. All groups will present their learning at a public exhibition held at school toward the end of Term 3.
