Teachers take part in STEM workshop at Wodonga Senior Secondary

ROUGHLY 40 teachers from across the region attended a professional development day hosted by the Regional STEM Centre in Wodonga last week.

The workshop aimed to help change the way teachers teach technology, and with that, how students learn about it.

Teachers were tasked with constructing robots out of cardboard and circuits using fabric as part of the day’s proceedings.

“We need to be using technology in meaningful ways,” Wodonga Senior Secondary teacher and Regional STEM Centre director Michael Rosenbrock said.

“We looked at where learning intersects with problem-solving, design, and creativity.”
