Akorn regularly creates custom made ‘Extended Programs’ which are primarily run in-school, with the support of an outside organisation.

Below are some examples of what we do.

‘Global Green’ at Aquinas College in Ringwood

Our two week program at Aquinas College Ringwood, part of their ‘Global Green’ Engineers Without Borders Challenge was a resounding success.

The project is a fantastic way of providing co-curricular activities that not only include STEM based activities, incorporate aspects of geography, humanities, english, arts, design and & technology, all of course with a positive impact upon the community.

30 year 8 students were outstanding in their achievements, self management and communication of engineering ideas based upon the real-life challenges faced by villagers in Tonle Sap area of Cambodia.

These programs are a simulation of the projects and engineering solutions currently being undertaken by Engineers Without Borders in the field in Cambodia.

 

We would like to thank program partners:

Engineers Without Borders
Catholic Education Office Melbourne
and the enthusiastic staff at Aquinas College
