Boys Ready to STEAM Ahead

In 2017, Christ Church Grammar School became the 100th institution to join the international coding phenomenon CoderDojo. Originating in Ireland, this social movement of computer programming clubs was formed to address the looming worldwide shortage of computer programmers. Christ Church offers coding as part of its curriculum to build 21st century skills such as critical thinking, problem solving and creativity.

Christ Church also partners with Fire Tech Camp, a leading provider of technology and STEAM clubs for students in Australia. This partnership allows Christ Church boys the opportunity to learn how to design smartphone applications, build robots and create games. STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) is an educational approach to learning that involves guiding inquiry, dialogue and critical thinking.

“It is wonderful to see our students developing the core competencies that will allow them to make a positive difference to their world in the near future,” says Christ Church Principal, Mr Alan Jones.
