Young Engineers

​​​​St Columba's is excited to continue our partnership with Young Engineers in providing in class and after school opportunities for our students.

STEM is becoming increasingly important for all students as they develop the life skills that are critical to becoming active, creative, and informed citizens who contribute to society, especially in rapidly changing times. 

STEM skills include;

  • Theoretical concepts
  • Practical application of theory
  • Critical Thinking
  • Problem Solving
  • Data Analysis
  • Engineering
  • Physics
  • Coding
A range of programs are on offer for students in Years 4 - 6 as part of our in class program offerings. ​Facilitated by Young Engineers staff and ably supported by classroom teachers;
  • students build and program motorised LEGO models
  • These models are working prototypes of real world machines
  • Different levels of the program cater to a range of ages and abilities
  • Children build everything from washing machines, power plants and helicopters to human and animal robots. All the machines move and work at the press of a button

An after school program is offered as an​ extra-curricular opportunity for students in Prep - Year 6.  Due to the popularity of this opportunity, places are limited.  For more information on course offerings, prices, and registration, please visit the Young Engineers website HERE​ and keep an eye out in the school newsletters for sign up details.
