Malvern-based De La Salle College, in Melbourne, opened its new Science and Technology Centre in June 2018, representing its commitment to a science education that requires new thinking, new approaches and is responsive to the increasing global importance of STEM education for young people.
With the global workforce changing, STEM skills are now being recognised as among the most important to prepare today’s students for the jobs of the future.
The Science and Technology Centre has been designed to maximise student engagement and inspire students to further their studies across the breadth of the science curriculum. The three state-of-the-art laboratories cater for specialised practical activity, where mobile workstations allow re-configuration of the space to suit the task. Adjacent classroom spaces support theoretical work and the central area includes a presentation space with tiered seating. Throughout the centre, small learning hubs have been configured for individual student study and small group collaboration.
The centre has been designed to exploit the use of technology in learning, allowing for effective use of student and teacher devices and video projection to further enhance teaching and learning.
This new Science and Technology Centre is the first of several exciting developments at De La Salle College. For a video tour, please click here.
