At Lynwood Senior High School we recognise the importance of building a student’s 21st century skills, both inside and outside of the classroom environment.

STEM stands for: Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics. 

Lynwood Senior High School recognises the national and global importance of encouraging students to select and succeed in STEM subjects and to aspire to STEM careers.

The aim of the STEM Robotics Club is to offer students in Years 7-12 the opportunity to participate in fun and engaging ways to learn the 5 key 21st century skills future jobs demand – Critical Thinking, Collaboration, Communication, Creativity and Cultural Understanding. Students learn these key personal work and life skills through mechanical, electrical and software engineering challenges in teams delivered with a design and innovation thinking approach. And supported by mentors. Our STEM technologies facilities offer students access to laser cutting, CNC machining, 3D Printing, and virtual and augmented reality.

Robotics club offers each student a chance to participate in industry recognised and supported national and international secondary school robotics competition through the FIRST Robotics programs – FIRST Lego League – FLL (Years 8-9), FIRST Technology Challenge – FTC (Years 9-11) and FIRST Robotics Competition – FRC (Years 9-12).

Our partnerships in Robotics and STEM with industry, skilled mentors and universities ensure that students gain future focussed skills and confidence in selecting and succeeding in STEM subjects and aspiration to STEM career pathways. We acknowledge our strong partnerships with Curtin and Murdoch Universities in this programs well as the support of the Department of Education Marine Industries School Pathways Program.
