What is KIOSC?
Over the past few years WaSPS has partnered with Swinburne University for our Year 5 & 6 students to attend the KIOSC program, KIOSC stands for Knox Innovations Opportunity & Sustainability Centre, KIOSC is a free program for our students, where they are introduced to a variety of STEM learning opportunities and are hands on with technologies that engage them with the world of science. Student's Lego Mind storm are introduced to the world of virtual reality as well as getting to explore actual science labs.

First LEGO League

Another opportunity presented is some students competing in First Lego League. This is world-wide competition, where students compete with a robot and design solutions for real-world-problems. The competition is judged off 3 elements.

The robot that the team has built along with its programming which must complete a series of challenges

The project where students think critically and develop solutions to a problem in our world, that is presented to a panel of judges

The core values which the team must adhere to – the core values centre around teamwork, cooperation and gracious professionalism.

As of 2020 we have had 3 teams attend First Lego League with one of our 2019 teams taking out the gracious professionalism award.
