Data#3 partners with Deakin Uni in advanced learning program


IT services and solutions provider Data#3 has teamed up with Victoria’s Deakin University to help foster advanced student learning in conjunction with the STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) program.

Under the partnership, Data#3 is providing a combination of Lenovo Tablets and Sphero Edu Robots to Deakin University’s Warrnambool Campus, helping to facilitate STEM activities for school students.

The program has started with students from Heywood and District Secondary School and Macarthur Primary School using the equipment for the first time as part of an on-campus school camp.

“STEM covers a wide range of disciplines and skills, which are increasingly in demand in a rapidly changing world, and are important for all stages of learning,” said Geraldine Moloney, Deakin Warrnambool manager for Community Engagement.

Data#3 says the Sphero Edu provides a toolset to help students learn to program robots and, from draw and drive to learning real JavaScript, the activities nurture cognitive skills and independent exploration.

“This is a fantastic initiative, and the team at Data#3 are excited to be a part of this innovative learning program. With advanced technology so accessible, the benefits afforded to educators and students are endless. We look forward to working with Deakin University and other education providers in implementing The Anywhere Classroom to enable limitless learning for students,” said David Wain, national practice manager for Education at Data#3.
