DATTA Vic members - We're delighted to publish details of our new STEM Skills incursion program for term 3 2022.
This session is running in Term 2 and up to 10 teachers can participate. It is available to member schools within the Melbourne Metropolitan area as detailed here:
Experienced educator Pat McMahon will visit your school and offer you and your colleagues a hands-on introduction to Arduino – an open-source electronics platform, where single-board microcontrollers and kits are used to build digital devices. Pat will take you through a range of projects, including LEDs, push-button switches, sounders, potentiometers, and ultra-sonic sensors. You’ll discuss the applications for this technology in the classroom and identify new ways to engage your students in STEM
Are you interested in running STEM Up-skilling Incursions for teachers in your local area? Contact Laura at email@example.com to discuss.

Tinkercad is a free web application for 3D design, electronics, and coding. It is the perfect introduction to CAD and is very intuitive. It has been designed with the classroom in mind and is suitable for both primary and secondary students. This professional learning session is suitable for beginners and beginner to intermediate teachers and by the end, participants will have the resources and confidence to use Tinkercad to design products with their students.
The session will be facilitated by Anthony Bacon, Head of Technologies, at Mentone Grammar School who came into education after working as an Industrial Designer!
This session will be centred around developing modelling skills for Laser Cutting and 3D printing. Contemporary CAD/CAM manufacturing in the classroom.
In this hands-on session, teachers will be learning CAD skills through designing a product and will cover the following learning outcomes:
Participants will receive the recording, presenter slides and associated resources after the event.
NOTE: The Webex link for this session will be sent via email a business day prior to the event.
