Trotec Laser visited Adelaide High School from 16-17 April 2018.
Spotlight on the Science in STEM
On the 16th and 17th of April, Trotec attended the SASTA (South Australian Science Teachers Association) Annual Conference & Exhibition. And it was a huge success! This event showcases an effective and informative practice in science teaching for educators and laboratory officers in primary and secondary schools. And we were so excited to be a part of this informative and constructive exhibition!
This year, the conference addressed a range of content from the Australian Science Curriculum, focusing on STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) teachings. Attendees were able to visit industry professionals and try out new technologies, as well as learn practical and investigative approaches to promoting STEM education.
We at Trotec were so proud to be a part of something as important as education. We believe that the minds of tomorrow need to be nurtured and encouraged. There’s a lot of potential out there, and we want to turn that spark of creativity into a fire of knowledge and progress! Trotec offers first-class laser systems that cut, engrave and mark on a wide range of materials, and we want to ensure that this unlimited technological potential is available for use and experimentation in schools – the birthplace of thinkers, tinkerers and creators.
The South Australian Science Teachers Association aims 'to promote and support the teaching of science in schools', and 'to foster the professional development of science teachers'. Discover more about this inspiring organisation below.
Trotec supplies laser engraving and marking machine to schools across Australia and New Zealand, and we are so proud and excited to be a part of the development of young minds. The transferable skills that a student can develop in a classroom environment can benefit them for the rest of their lives. With the demand for laser processing and industrial applications growing every day, we believe that teaching young people about the benefits of our technology can truly help them in the future.
We believe that the best way to teach is to do… So instead of explaining something to a student in a classroom, let them have a go themselves! Our laser machines are sophisticated but have a user-friendly software that encourages creativity and experimentation. So, they are the perfect tool for young people, and may even spark an ongoing creative and productive interest – honestly, what young person doesn’t want to play with lasers!?
