This year's theme of Innovation: Powering Future Industries explores the link between science and technology and advances across all areas of science. Technology uses science to solve problems and science uses technology to make new discoveries. Science and technology help each other in advance. New technologies often allow scientists to explore nature in new ways.

To celebrate National Science Week at Redeemer, students will have the opportunity to come to the STEM room at lunchtime to explore science as a human endeavour.

Students will engage in activities that allow them to explore the different forms of technology across the different science strands of chemical, physical, earth & space and biological sciences. Some of the technology they will explore includes microscopes, a telescope, drones, robots and the use of artificial intelligence (AI).

The activities will include:

  • Using a microscope (in the field of medicine)
  • Making ‘medicines’ (medicine)
  • Using walkie talkies (wireless communication)
  • Making a smartphone
  • Using a telescope (space technology)
  • Flying a rocket (space technology) and exploring space
  • Flying a drone (defense technology)
  • Playing with robots
  • An Artificial Intelligence (AI) activity
  • And perhaps a meteorological technology activity too.
