ASPIRE Program

We launched our new ASPIRE program last week with tremendous success.  The ASPIRE (Achieve, Shine, Play, Ignite, Reflect, Engage) program has been designed to allow local primary school students the opportunity to work with our Year 8 students on STEM based activities.  Thirty-three enthusiastic Grade 4s from St Dominic's Primary were the first to tackle one of humanity's major problems: World Hunger.  Students explored the possibility of farming and eating insects as an alternative food source and all teams created their own model insect farm before presenting their ideas to parents and Siena College staff.
