Singleton Public School and its neighbouring schools have demonstrated the capacity and reliability of upgraded wireless network technology to the Assistant Minister for Education, Sarah Mitchell MLC.
Students showcased exciting new STEMShare equipment including virtual excursions, robotics, automated navigation, digital filming and 3D printing to the Minister, following the recent network upgrades Singleton Public School received as a part of the Connecting Country Schools project.
The STEMShare Community program supports students and teachers access STEM education through technology kits, training and learning content in NSW public schools. The kits will be available from next month for schools to borrow for a term.
The Connecting Country Schools initiative is upgrading wireless infrastructure in more than 13,000 classrooms and outdoor learning areas in more than 900 regional and remote schools around the state.
Connecting Country Schools’ upgrades are equipping students with the skills they need for careers in the digital age.
Each school in the project is being equipped with a customised wireless network design that will deliver modern and reliable wireless connectivity to all learning spaces.
Strong wireless infrastructure will support future-focused learning and teaching, allowing greater collaboration via better access to online knowledge databases and other digital resources.
