    How can MLC better integrate the 3 key learning experiences of Years 8,9,10 (City Experience, Broken Hill and Enlightenment) to ensure that students are developing and exhibiting skills that encompass project-based, challenge-based and enquiry-based thinking? How can the experiences be improved to better connect them in the minds of students?

    - These 3 experiences have traditionally sought to bring in the principles of cross-curricular learning experiences. Our proposal seeks to maintain these principles, and bring in connectedness to the real world by providing and engaging students with service learning experiences.
    - Service based approach: students remember learning that is meaningful. What makes the deepest impact? What is the most memorable? Conversations with year 11 students revealed that they remember the service learning the best. They look back on that fondly and felt that they made a real impact on society.
    This led us to think further. What if each of these key experiences could become truly memorable? What if the end product was not knowledge, but action? What if knowledge became a by-product of action? Students need to see a learning path, a road-map that shows them the way ahead, and their achievements to date.
    We propose a service learning model for these 3 key experiences. City Experience --> service learning, based on solving problems in the city.

    Introduction to Inquiry Based thinking

    How do 3 key learning experiences of Years 8,9,10 (City Experience, Broken Hill and Enlightenment) align to 21st century pedagogical models of project/challenge/enquiry/problem based learning? How can the experiences be improved to better connect them in the minds of students?

    - Previous teaching experiences have shown that grouping students (or preselecting them for learning robotics) based on mathematical results or aptitude is bound for only limited success. The preselection was done to combat (or perhaps weed out) attitudes amongst many younger students that the goal of study in robotics is to build commercial-standard robots in little time and zero effort.
