It’s time to be a maker! Being a ‘maker’ is to be innovative and creative. It is hands on learning , doing project work that is collaborative and fun.

Last semester HCOS students had a chance to learn about coding using Lego mazes,’Microbits’ and Lego Wedo. They were able to research and design their own catapults and build their own cardboard arcade games inspired by Cain’s Arcade Cardboard challenge. This semester the themes are a mixture of STEAM based activities using both technology and art.

If any of your grade 3-6 students are interested please email Justine Dehod at to register or if you have any queries.
