Our technology clubs are out of this world – literally!
We’ve launched sensor boards into space, programmed dancing robots, we’re building electric bikes – and we’re racing them too!
Very popular with Junior and Senior students, our technology and STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics) clubs will see your child coding their way to contentment.
- ImagineArt in the Junior School is a dedicated space for students to engage in creative STEAM projects, collaborate with others, and create masterpieces.
- The brand new STEM Lab in the early Learning Centre is engaging all 5 of our preschoolers senses. The STEM extension was funded by the Department of Education’s Start Strong Capital Works Program in partnership with HVGS.
- Computer and Coding Clubs are fantastic for students in Years 3 – 6 who are interested in learning to code and program robots. Year 6 students can join the Senior School teams to program robots for the RoboCupJunior competition.
- Junior School STEAM Club encompasses aspects of science, technology, engineering, art, mathematics and robotics. It’s available for Years 1 – 6 and runs in Terms 2 and 3.
- Computer Club for students in Years 7 – 12 focuses on programming robots for competition. Students can test their programming prowess against other schools in the RoboCup.
- In recent years the HVGS robotics team, Robogals, programmed their dancing robot all the way to the national RoboCupJunior competition. Dubbed the educational game of the new millennium, RoboCupJunior develops engineering and IT skills in a fun, project-orientated, collaborative environment.
- Students undertake a semester long STEAM unit in Year 8, exploring the interdisciplinary nature of music. It presents an exciting opportunity to make your own tuned musical instrument.
- Gaming Club is also proving very popular with students.
“Our students use basic coding at all year levels and our cocurricular clubs are helping them to take control of technology.”
