Programs And Services - Akorn Educational Services

Akorn Educational Services (AES) offers a variety of student focused programs. The Biz-Ed Linx Students @ Work range of programs support several of the government initiatives which encourage organizations to provide rich and engaging experiences for young people while assisting schools in connecting with the “real” world.

STEM (Science Technology Engineering Maths) Based Programs:

“These are the ultimate science programs for students – working on real science problems, in real science workplaces for real purposes that benefit society.” – Simon Lindsay, Senior Project Officer-Science, Innovation and Research, Catholic Education Office Melbourne.

These programs provide students with valuable knowledge and skills that help them function effectively in a scientifically and technologically advanced society teaching students how to identify and investigate issues, draw evidence-based conclusions and make informed decisions.

There are several different models for these programs; the traditional secondary school program provides a 1/2 day training session prior to a five-day team work placement. Other models include a Semester (2 terms) program working with a whole class (approx 25-30 students). Another model being trialed during 2010 is a year long collaborative project with teams from two schools working with a community partner to develop resource materials.

Many of these STEM programs provide opportunities for the participants to reaserch, design and create products/services that benifit the comunity.
