Digital Technologies Program

Real-World Learning

Co-designed with industry and DT curriculum experts, each challenge engages students to connect in-class ‘hands on’ learning with real-world examples of obstacles faced by today’s sector.  

Examples include: 

  • exploring the diversity of Western Australia including the Pilbara from Ningaloo Reef to the Great Sandy Desert 
  • learning how raw materials are used in everyday items 
  • programming and coding robots to monitor coral reefs 
  • calibrating vehicles to move around rough terrain 
  • simulating a remote operations centre (ROC),  
  • building skills in collecting and analysing data for modelling and projections within real-world context.

The CME Digital Technologies Program delivers curriculum aligned content for students in Pre-Primary to Year 10.  Incorporating online and offline activities, students build skills in automation and data science through real-world scenario challenges.

A partnership between CME member companies, curriculum design experts Grok Academy and supported by the WA Government, the Digital Technologies Program provides students with a fun and engaging way to build essential STEM skills for their future.
