Co-curricular Program


STEM is an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. STEM uses project based learning to holistically foster students’ skills in creativity, design thinking, collaboration and problem solving. Modern life is filled with STEM invented products: mobile phones, electric cars, video games, virtual reality, Fit-Bits, to name a few.

At Kilbreda College, our students are the inventors. They have many opportunities to participate in a number of co-curricular activities and learn firsthand what it is like to create something extraordinary in our contemporary world.


One of our newer developed facility is our dedicated space for all STEM activities. This specialist room provides students with a space to participate in the programing of robots, coding micro:bits and utilising green screen technology.
