Redlands Steam Sustainability Competition
Ms FELICITY WILSON (North Shore)
—Speaker Redlands Secondary School Year 7 students have been busy in the classroom creating and designing their own eco-friendly sustainable cities using Minecraft during STEAM classes. STEAM is an approach to learning that uses Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics, and it teaches students to be critical thinkers and innovative in their works. Creating eco-friendly sustainable cities using Minecraft demonstrates the real-world education that will prepare these students for different growth fields. I commend the hard work and the innovative real-life ideas of eco-friendly sustainable cities, and I'm excited to see these young people make these cities a reality one day. The STEAM project was a collaborative effort between Year 7 and a group of Year 12 students who guided and supported their peers in this exciting demonstration of learning. Congratulations to 7 Roseby White for taking out the overall winner of the Best Sustainable World and 7 McDouall Blue for winning the People's Choice Award. Thank you to the teachers for encouraging students to participate in such an incredible project and giving them the skills and foundations to excel in this area of study.
