Last Thursday 20 Year 6 River Rangers attended the Kids Teaching Kids Conference in Mandurah. The students conducted two workshops at the conference on various environmental issues they had studied this year. The title of their workshop was: Using digital technologies to promote environmental awareness and behaviour change with a youth audience. Five technologies were showcased: EV3 robot eco stories; website creation; water testing with scans; animation skills and designing Pokemon cards. To share what our River Rangers had learnt they conducted small group, hands-on learning sessions with Year 6-11 students from other schools.
After presenting our workshops in the morning, the students attended other presentations in the afternoon. The day finished with an evening dinner-dance and a grand celebration was had by all!
The students represented our school with distinction and demonstrated their high levels of expertise with different technologies, as well as resilience, confidence and respect. Sincere thanks to the parent helpers (Dilusha Silva, Kym Flannery and Marco Scampoli) and staff (Ian Wilson, Olivia George and Elaine Lewis) involved. Participation in the conference was an amazing learning experience!
