Students from Casula High School headed off to China to participate in the ‘Belt and Road’ Teenage Maker Camp and Teacher workshop. The workshop, in Beijing, runs from 17 to 22 December and is hosted by the Ministry if science and technology of the People’s Republic of China and the China Association for Science and Technology.
The Belt and Road is an initiative of the Chinese government to develop infrastructure connections between Asia and Europe.
The competition aims to strengthen communications and cooperation between China and countries along the Belt and Road and also to inspire innovation in young people in the region.
Through our connections with learned science and technology academies and our principal sponsor Orica, STELR was able to assist with organising for Orica to sponsor a team of Casula High School girls to attend the maker camp. Casula High School has been a STELR School since 2013 and we would like to thank Ken Silburn, Head Teacher Science, for assisting with organising the trip.
