These student webinars are especially for students taking part in the STEM Design Challenge - Animals at Home .

In the STEM Design Challenge, Foundation to Year 10 students design solutions for animals featured in the Animals at Home live streams. Students will use their STEM skills, knowledge and an engineering framework called Design Thinking. They are also invited to share a video of their design with their peers and Zoos Victoria.

This program is being offered for free as part of Zoo Education Online during Term 2 in 2020. 

Students can join a webinar using a website link or the Adobe Connect app on their tablet or phone. They will need speakers or headphones to hear the conversation and a keyboard to type their questions into the chat box. No camera or microphone is required.

These student webinars link to the Victorian Curriculum Levels 7-10: Science, Design & Technologies, Mathematics, Critical and Creative Thinking

In these webinars students will:

  • Meet a zoo teacher and hear about the STEM Design Challenge
