In 2020, APC held a STEM Innovation Day (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) at the Laverton School, with students in years 1 – 12 from Laverton and the remote annexes of Cosmo Newberry and Mulga Queen, and Mt Margaret School, attending. The purpose of the day was to introduce the concept of curriculum augmentation programs to the teacher cohort across the district, and to introduce hands on learning of STEM subjects to students and focused on drone, robotics, coding and VR technologies.
The day was supported by local and regional stakeholders, including the Laverton Shire, Leonora School and local miners Anglo Gold Ashanti and St Barbara Limited. The program was delivered by Firetech, a national education services provider head-quartered in Perth.
Following the very strong positive feedback to the Innovation Day, APC contracted with Firetech to provide a STEM augmentation program through the Laverton School for the 2021, 2022 and 2023 teaching years. The program is now well established and is subject to iterative customisation based upon student, parent and teacher feedback.
