The Game Changer Awards provides a platform for students to demonstrate their inventive solutions to global issues through project-based learning and STEM skills. It is an excellent opportunity for our students to not only build up their STEM skills, but also to gain experience in careful planning, problem-solving, teamwork and overcoming obstacles throughout the project development process. This year, Rehoboth Christian College students took on the challenge by creating products that address pressing world problems such as deforestation, poverty in Nigeria, clothes overproduction, world hunger. Smart gadgets for teachers, parents, and drivers, as well as projects to combat forest fires were also created.
The 2021 Game Changer Project Showcase and Awards Ceremony was held on Saturday 6 November at Curtin University Stadium in Bentley, and our students were invited to present their project prototypes to a panel of judges. Throughout the day, they also had the opportunity to participate in a variety of fun STEM-based activities. The best part of the ceremony was seeing everyone’s creativity and hearing inspiring talks from STEM experts during the awards presentation ceremony.
At the conclusion of the event, the students were thrilled to find out our Year 9 students, Alexander Buchanan, Calvin Sukri and Sarah Murray had received the Best Use of STEM award for the Year 9-10 group, and our Year 7 students, Levi Fletcher, Rehema Jarega and Josie Murray had won the Best Use of STEM award for the Year 7-8 group. This comes as an encouragement for our students to keep up with their strong teamwork and innovation. Congratulations to our students on their efforts and a big thank you to the Game Changer Awards for providing students with this fantastic opportunity to broaden their STEM knowledge.
