STEM in Sport


On Wednesday, four of our Year 9 students attended a STEM in Sport session led by the Geelong Cats and the Geelong Tech School. Students had the opportunity to investigate the impact of technology in sport through using the latest technology used for the National AFL draft testing. Students also gained feedback on game skills using technology and participated in workshops developing design and technology skills. In addition to these activities, a panel consisting of Monica Kelly from the Geelong Cats' sports science division, Andrew Mackie and Dr Richard Helmer PhD BE BSc, shared their experiences with the students.

“I enjoyed going to STEM in sport because we got to design a car and make up ideas to put into it.” Cooper Geall.

“In this program I enjoyed being exposed to the real life parts of technology and getting hands on with industry technology.” Noah Saffin.

“I thought that is was really good to be able to use the virtual reality system to be able to see and model cars in such high quality even before they were made.” Hunter Visser.

“I enjoyed having the opportunity to go to the STEM in Sport and having the chance to learn more about the equipment available to the AFL players and to learn about the new Geelong Tech School that will create lots of opportunities for the Geelong community.” Max Goulter.
