The virtual design space is providing opportunities for QAHS students to problem solve on issues that impact our community.
Five QAHS students have self nominated for the Regional STEM Girls Virtual Design Challenge which sees them collaborating in pairs on the challenge Deep Blue: Innovations for the future of our oceans and the establishment of a blue economy. Students are using the iSee virtual collaboration space, an online conference tool that enables checking in, discussion and learning in a virtual online class space. Selecting from the focus topics of impact:
· Biodiversity Conservation
· Climate Change
· Food Security
· Energy Security,
students will engage in leadership sessions to empathy map, ideate, prototype and present their ideas, as well as lectures and Q&A sessions with university academics and industry professionals to support the development of ideas.
We look forward to seeing the final pitches which will be presented as a TED-X style virtual event in global collaboration with STEM Belles Nigeria to launch National Science Week in mid-August.
