STEM workshop

Groups will explore the electromagnetic spectrum, including radio waves, ultraviolet, visible and infrared light using specialised cameras. Given a variety of materials to explore, they will test whether something can be made invisible in one section of the spectrum, but remain visible in others. The workshop will explore the real world applications of their discoveries.

Success in the workshop will require:

  • Critical and creative thinking
  • Collaboration
  • Practical problem solving
  • Design thinking
