The School Pathways Program (Defence industries) has provided ongoing support for the best practice in ICT pathways at Hampton Senior High School

(A Department of Education Specialist ICT school http://hampton.cloudsites.net.au/ict/ )

 

 

This support enables teachers and students to gain industry relevant robotics and assisted manufacturing skills and abilities.

During April 2012, Maria D'Cunha of Hampton Senior High School delivered an ICT PD workshop for teachers on Robotics and Assisted Manufacturing using the 3D printer. Subsequent to this teacher PD, Hampton Design and Technology and Information and Communications Technology students at Hampton Senior High worked enthusiastically together using Google SketchUp to create designs and to produce 3D prototypes. Hampton Senior High School students have successfully applied the knowledge and skills gained to achieve positive practical outcomes to their Scitech Robocup experience.
The annual teXpo highlights Hampton High School achievements and Pathways in ICT.

teXpo 2012 once again showcased the talents of Hampton High School ICT and business studies students.
Key attractions included the 3D manufacturing printer, the NXT robots and the Scitech Technology van.

Special guests included:Mr Martin Whitely (MLA) , Ms Margaret Blackborrow (Specialist Programs DOE) , Ms Gail Manton (School Pathways Program DOE) and Mr Paul Neates (Principal – Hampton Park Primary).
Staff, parents, special guests and primary school students who attended the teXpo acknowledged the high standard of work on display.
