Jervois Primary School recently attended the Social Ventures Australia (SVA) conference in Canberra. Students Scarlett Cocks and Piper McCormick were escorted by teachers Mickelle Miegel and Rachel Edwards.
The conference focused on Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM). They were joined by five other SA Schools, including Mypolonga Primary and Murray Bridge High School.
Throughout the conference there were several learning opportunities for both students and adults to think, engage and make.
Apart from the learning experiences throughout the day, all schools were invited to a gathering at Parliament House where they were able to meet Penny Wong along with Toni Pasin.
Piper McCormick said Parliament House was really interesting.
Students and Adults also had the opportunity to visit the University of Canberra, the Inspire Centre and the Questacon Workshop where guests were given the opportunity to demonstrate a growth mindset, create, problem solve and have fun.
