STEM at Aquinas: Our Drone  

 

STEM is a curriculum based on the idea of educating students in four specific disciplines - science,  technology, engineering and mathematics. Rather than teach the   four disciplines as separate and discrete subjects, STEM integrates them into a cohesive learning paradigm based on real-world applications.

 

Students are naturally curious and excited about experimentation, so drones offer a chance to learn by solving concrete problems and experimenting with hands-on activities. Drones make STEM learning relevant and fun by allowing students to become creators of technology and by allowing them to collaborate, build off each others’ creative ideas, and share enthusiasm.

("Accelerate STEM Learning with Drones | Tynker Blog", 2017)

 

The following images were taken by Matthew Ross (Year 11) and our IT Department on Aquinas Day (8th June). Our new College drone, the Phantom 4 Pro 4 not only takes beautiful still photos but also amazing digital video footage. Photography and video footage from our College drone can be seen on the Aquinas Catholic College website and on the display panels in the Administration foyer and MLC.

 

 

 

 

 

Every student should be using the full capabilities of their devices using:


 SEQTA Learn (access via the College website www.aquinasmenai.catholic.edu.au)
 Jacaranda Textbook (www.jacplus.com.au)
 Education Perfect (www.educationperfect.com)


The College has provided all students with a student login and password for the above mentioned websites. Any student who has challenges with their device must see the ICT support staff in the library as soon as possible (recess and lunchtime so no classtime is missed).
Students are asked to consult with the ICT staff before a new version of software is installed so all necessary security certificates match our network.

 

The College has implemented a Bring Your Own Designated Device Program
