The Wyndham Tech School is a hi-tech centre of learning for school students to access learning experiences, connections to local industry and jobs of the future. Last week, the Wyndham Tech School proudly hosted Hip Hop Circus 2019.
Secondary school students and their teachers from partner schools experienced the best of the region’s technology education programs, industry partnerships and student-led science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics (STEAM) experiences.
“It was a day where we could really showcase our culturally diverse community of future employees and entrepreneurs, using the universal language of technology to drive innovation of thought and to create change.” says Brenda Frisk Director Wyndham Tech School.
Students were guided by industry experts through a series of rapid design workshops to create a cultural experience through technology and performance art. Students participated in industry design with community partners at Side Show Alley; spent lunch time engaged with a hip hop flash mob on centre stage, and for the finale, performed a impressive beat box performance.
The Hip Hop Circus program included; Side Show Alley – expo presented by industry partners, Beatbox – presented by @loyaltothebeat, Vocal loop – presented by @charlywmusic, Hip Hop movement analysis – presented by Victoria University and APO Arts Academy, Circus skills – presented by the Women’s Circus, Virtual Reality and design thinking – presented by Goat VR, and Special effects and screen makeup – presented by Victoria University.
