Maths Science Excellence

 
Math and Science Excellence Programs
The Mabel community believe that we have implemented an innovative school-wide program that embeds a STEM-inquiry approach.  Students have the opportunity to develop a deep understanding of concepts and then apply those skills to problem-based, hands-on learning.  Additionally, we have created a strong learning culture and work with students to create a viable pathway into a STEM career.
Students have access to a range of further programs to enhance their success such as:
Maths Science Academy (MSA)
This program promotes academic rigor and a passion for 21st learning skills.
Students are:
  • challenged and extended in class through
  • specialised learning programs
  • involved in leadership opportunities such as the MSA Champion initiative and University Ambassador programs
  • engaged in real-world experiences to inspire future scientists and mathematicians.
This program is supported by organisations such as University of Queensland, Origin Energy, the Beacon Foundation, Code Australia and Engineers without Borders.
Girls Excelling in Maths and Science (GEMS) Project
This program aims to create confident girls who will be better prepared for a rewarding future in STEM.  It is supported by organisations such as Global Sisters, Griffith University and sponsorship from Subway.  Members can engage in one afternoon a week to build and create STEM projects to help equip them with further skills, particularly in electronics and engineering.  Members have access to female mentors and experiences that create connections with real-world careers and professionals.
