Spotlight on Technology 2016

10—11 November 2016
Campbelltown Catholic Club

Welcome to Spotlight on Technology 2016! This is a very exciting year for us and we want you to share in that excitement.

Spotlight is a two-day event showcasing powerful learning with STEM in classrooms across the Diocese of Wollongong. This major event will feature keynote addresses, a student panel, competitions, outstanding teacher spotlight sessions as well as vendor displays and presentations highlighting the latest technology. 

The event is free to Wollongong Diocese teachers.

The text of our times today is STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) so our spotlight will this year focus on STEM.

Not into STEM? NO Problems there are plenty of other options available as well.

A lot of people have told me "i'd like to do robots in my class but they are so expensive" well, for the first 200 people to register you will find in your show bag your very own m-bot robot.

The mbot is yours to take home and scare the cat with, use it in your classroom to teach coding and real world computing or even better get together with other mbot owners (there will be 200 of you) and put together a sumo bot team so your kids compete in the national and international sumo bot challenge!

Still not impressed? That's cool. How about learning how to solder? It's great fun and a useful skill. Or what's say we build a bottle rocket or mouse trap powered car?

Well that's what #spotlight16 is about! Building Stuff! Don't be shy get one of your dad's old shirts bring your paints and let's get building! Of course we will be running competitions for great prizes so book yourself in for two great days of learning, sharing and fun!
