Girls Innovate Event and the Launch of the Digital Co-Labs bring record crowds
Published August 22, 2023
On August 17th the opening of the new Digital Co-Labs at the 2023 Girls Innovate event was simply electric, with record numbers of families in attendance to witness how St Cuthbert’s College is teaching for the future with our Technology offering.
The newly created Digital Co-Labs were officially opened and parents and students alike engaged in a range of digital tools, enjoyed hands-on tech exploration and innovative game play.
110 families attended tours run by Head of Faculty, Sam Langatuki with guest speaker Professor Olaf Diegel from the University of Auckland introducing the mindbending future of 3D printing and creative industries.
Students were able to take part in many hands-on activities including robotics, VR experiences, badge and lego making. Upstairs in the Atrium the giant dance floor was well attended and in the Auditorium it was fantastic to see the energy coming from a esports tournament which was run for parents and students to compete in Rocket League teams of two.
The Technology Faculty run and support many creative clubs students can be part of. Students from these clubs did a terrific job showcasing their activities and selling afternoon tea to raise extra funds to support the resources they need. We’re grateful to parents and Board members for running the sausage sizzle.
Parents and students alike learned so much about the clubs available and we look forward to seeing more students register with the clubs to grow their digital opportunities at St Cuthbert’s.
