ISC Department Update

Jun 14, 2019 | Garnsey News

It has been another busy term for the Gippsland Grammar Garnsey students and ISC staff. 

Year 7 history students learnt how to use Photoshop to create a poster and also researched Ancient Egypt using books and the Worldbook Online Encyclopedia and Clickview.

All senior students (Years 9-12) are gradually being taken through the process of joining the State Library of Victoria Online. This enables students to access multiple databases for information, as well as subject guides for some VCE subjects.

Each Tuesday lunchtime the ISC also hosts a 3D Printing and Otto Robotics Club. More than a dozen students have been learning how to use the 3D printer and varying 3D programs to create their own models. They have created 3D scans and busts of themselves, as well as creating their own superheroes. They have also started to build their 3D printed robots and are learning how to program them. Stay tuned for some fabulous robot dances!

The ISC Book Club meets every second Friday at lunchtime. Members of the Book Club help in recommending new books for the ISC. Discussing and having a love of literature also means having robust, interesting conversations and opinions, as well as reading new and challenging books. At the moment some of the Book Club members are reading the Australian classic A Fortunate Life by Albert Facey.
