Stage 1 SySTEMic

Stage 1 subject open to Year 10 students

This is a Stage 1 Subject open to Year 10 students.

About the subject

SySTEMic is a hands-on project-based STEM subject that is targeted at students who aren’t yet sure about whether they’d like to pursue a STEM/Engineering-based career.

The course is offered in partnership with Engineers Australia and aims to encourage more students to take some of the more challenging mathematics and physical science courses in secondary school to allow them to be successful in an Engineering based career.

Semester 2 of 2021 will see Darwin High School pilot this subject for Year 10 students.

Course Content

Students work in teams of four to complete a project of their own choosing.

Each team will be mentored by an industry expert engineer to help guide their project. Students also get to go on excursions to visit businesses (COVID willing) to see what engineers actually do.
