The learning is linked to the Australian Curriculum in Science, alongside Design and Technologies.
The year 7 and 8 lessons and can be accessed for free here and give students opportunities to learn how to develop their computational thinking skills, gain confidence in STEM activities, deepen their understanding of STEM subject choices at school and STEM based careers.
