The world is changing, with rapidly emerging opportunities for innovation!

At the ASMS, we’re constantly trying new ways of adapting our curriculum to the 21st century. One of our newest Central Studies is called ‘Concept and Create’ (CnC), an interdisciplinary subject that integrates Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics with an emphasis on ‘Entrepreneurship’.

With rapidly emerging technologies and the fast-paced world we live in, opportunities for innovation are abundant, and this subject enables our students to gain and practice the 21st century skills necessary to innovate. Students were introduced to CnC by engaging them with the ’10 Big World Problems of Our Age’, and giving them ‘idea generation methods for designing solutions’. Four months later, some are working on addressing sustainability problems through their designs, while others are solving small design problems that affect everyday life.

The CnC Expo

  • Date: Tuesday 21 June
  • Time: 9AM – 10:30AM, 11AM – 12:30PM
  • Location: The Australian Science and Mathematics School, Bedford Park
  • Parking: Paid parking is available within the Sturt Campus, in carparks 13, 16, 18 (directly in front of the ASMS building), and 20.

The ASMS has previously held Expos for courses such as ‘Nanotechnology’ and ‘TechnoHistory Museum’, but this is on a larger scale than ever before!

After a semester of hard work, our students are proud to demonstrate their learning at our Concept and Create (CnC) Expo. There will be 73 stalls at the expo, with roughly 4 students per stall. Groups of students and staff from 12 schools around South Australia will also be attending, as well as mentor entrepreneurs, politicians, industry representatives, investors, and our judges. Members of the public are also invited to attend.

All attendees are able to evaluate our stalls by scanning their QR codes with any web-enabled device, or by accessing the bit.do provided on each stall.
