Our young people certainly demonstrated what they can do at the Schools Maker Faire. Our secondary students, led by our student ambassadors really created an exciting day for our local primary school students. We had 430 primary students attend on the day and over 100 secondary students running activities. In addition, we also had some generous support from the team at Careers Education Association of Victoria, City of Whittlesea and Melbourne Polytechnic. Feedback from the day has been overwhelmingly positive and we have built an expectation of an annual event! One thing is for sure, the students who participated won’t forget so many of the highlights, whether it be hearing from Marita Cheng, seeing Thomas Bitmatta flying his drones or even the Nao robot dancing Gangam Style!
Below is a short clip which captures some of the action on the day and a link to the report featured on DET’s website.
