A STEAM Experience: Drop & Swap


Monday August 17th marked the beginning of National Science Week and at Melville Senior High School, we celebrated in style with the release of a Melville made educational video, Drop & Swap.

Melville Senior High School’s very own Mr Guy Stapleton has been recognised both state-wide and nationally for his teaching talent and passion since being a finalist in the 2007 Holmes a Court-UTS Eureka Prize for Science Teaching for his enthusiasm  in optimising students’ understanding of scientific concepts.

Mr Stapleton has been named as the WA Premier’s Secondary Teacher of the Year 2015 for his motivational and inspirational teaching, and a winner of the 2016 ASG National Excellence in Teaching Award for Leadership and Development and Innovation.

The Drop & Swap video involved students working together and explored a cross curricular approach to team work, involving Science, Dance and Media students. In partnership with Murdoch University, the student group created the final product launched on Monday, Drop & Swap.

Drop & Swap is available across a range of streaming sites including Spotify, iTunes, Youtube and even Tik Tok!
