Our Year 8 Gifted and Talented students got their hands dirty this week when they learned about topography.
The students used the College’s interactive sandpit to create their own landforms.
Humanities and Social Sciences Associate Dean Michelle Statham said the activity was part of the Department’s focus on hands-on learning.
“The STEM interactive sandpit demonstrates coastal landscapes and enables students to build a variety of landforms which are generated on a topographic map,” she said.
“It gives students a greater understanding of geographic concepts and map-reading skills.”
