STEM Correspondent, Jonathan Weir, reports on a STEM/Art challenge that captured our boys’ imagination during the July school holidays- a creative alternative to screen time that saw a humble yellow bath toy transformed into an objet d’art.
At the end of Term 2, Ms Fox thought of a brilliant idea: how to reuse leftover ducks from the 2015 gala!
She created a competition for students to turn a duck into a ‘push’ or ‘pull’ toy and “Pimp it out” over the holidays.
The guidelines were to be creative and have fun! On the first few days back there were lots of ducks being brought in, and the students enjoyed checking them out during break times. Ms Fox said:
“It’s very cool to see so many amazing ducks. So much work has gone into all of them. I hope the boys and their families had fun creating them.”
