The primary five class at St. Michael’s Primary recently celebrated their passion for science, engineering, and technology alongside their parents. As part of an exciting program with DXC Technology, the students have been learning important ‘meta’ skills that will benefit them in the future.

The celebration of learning showcased what the students had achieved and how much fun they had during the workshops. Head teacher Colette Wallace expressed her delight at how fantastic the project has been for the students. Working with DXC on meta skills and preparing the students for a bright future has left a positive impression on both the students and their parents.

During the celebration, the students delivered a presentation to explain what they had learned during the project. Afterward, parents were invited to visit different workstations that highlighted the skills their children had acquired. There were opportunities for parents to engage in activities such as board games, coding, and engineering workshops.

Holly Stanton and her friend Elody Rodgers shared their enjoyment of participating in the project, particularly in creating their own games on the computer. The project aligns with Inverclyde’s focus on delivering a STEM program, with digital academies being held in secondary schools across the area. Michelle Muirhead from DXC Technology played a key role in leading the project and organizing workshops, emphasizing how crucial it is to expose children to STEM opportunities and help them develop essential meta skills.

Overall, this event was an excellent opportunity for youngsters to learn about science, engineering, and technology while also developing valuable meta skills that will serve them well throughout their lives.
