Time to Shine

The purpose of the Time to SHINE (Strategy Helping to Innovate and Nurture Excellence) Extension Program is to encourage Year 6 students from all Mount Isa schools to participate in secondary school experiences in Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics (STEAM). Students will be encouraged to develop problem solving skills and higher order thinking. The 2 x 4 week Gifted and Talented program is particularly designed to appeal to higher achieving students but all abilities are welcome. The program will provide interactive ‘hands-on’ activities for students to make them excited about learning. Activities will promote student inquiry, collaboration, innovation and creativity.
