STEM - Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics 
 
At Moreton Downs State School we pride ourselves on providing students the opportunity to participate in STEM challenges throughout the year. Over recent years, students have participated in the RoboCup Jnr and Sumo Competitions at other schools. Moreton Downs State School also hosts some amazing events with high student participation:
 
ROBOlympics
The ROBOlympics is a round robin competition where students compete against other teams from other schools in a variety of events. In 2018 the event gathered 28 teams of students from 7 schools to compete in 3 events: Ball Toss, Tug of War and Racing. It is an amazing opportunity for students to work as a team to program a robot and to create engineering solutions.
 

Moreton Bay Video Game Challenge
The Moreton Bay Video Game Challenge is a showcase of students game coding skills. Students can either work independently or as a team of 2 to create a video game on a particular theme using either Scratch or Kodu Game Lab software. In its 2nd year, the challenge brought together 40 students from 6 schools to demonstrate their coding abilities.

Our Preps were busy little bodies having fun in 4 rotations includsing Indigenous Games, Bubble storytelling with amazing and engaging oral language, colourful Indigenous body and face painting and joining in with Gibbah Gunyah traditional Aborigional dancing.

 

Our greatest appreciation to our community volunteers, Janine and her Gibbah Gunyah Aboriginal Dancers along with Gayle from the Deception Bay Library, all making our Under's Week event extra special.

 

All students and staff involved had a wonderful time and left for home sharing excellent stories with their families about cultural and language experiences. Our photos below show our Preps and Year 1 students having a wonderful time in many of the activities on offer.
