Transforming Girls –
At Mernda Park Primary School we would like to offer a lunchtime ‘Technology club’ for interested year 2-3 students. In particular we would like to target girls, who are under represented in science and technology in society. Using ‘Makey Makey’ an accessible invention kit for young students we hope to inspire our young inventors of tomorrow, increase the interest levels and participation of girls from a young age.
The major costs associated with the project are
A Makey Makey kit valued at 904.00. This offers a class pack x 15 sets.
The $1,000 grant will be used
A Makey Makey kit valued at 904.00
How they raise the rest of the funding
The rest of the cost is teacher's time which will be voluntary at lunchtimes.
