Technology and Innovation
The Co-Curricular Technology and Innovation program at Scots is designed to give students the opportunity to engage in important learning experiences through a range of programs that include robotics, coding, design, astronomy and Innovative problem-solving programs.
Through a range of individual and group activities, students are able to build skills in Design Thinking and Computational Thinking, which are transferable skills that build resilience, tenacity and resourcefulness. These are all important skills in order to be a life-long learner and prepare for jobs that don’t yet exist and to solve many of the problems faced by the next generation. Opportunities are offered that include participation in local, regional and national competitions, both in the Junior and Senior Schools.
STEM is considered an integral part of the curriculum at Scots. Through a hands-on, experimental approach, STEM programs make learning more purposeful and connected to the world outside the classroom. STEM initiatives are regularly incorporated into the Science, Digital Technologies and Mathematics curricula.
Students can also join Robotics, Astronomy and STEM-based clubs, as well as becoming involved in short-term challenges and competitions. These activities complement the curriculum, specifically digital technology, science and mathematics.
