Port Augusta STEM Centre Claims Design Award


Port Augusta’s state of the art STEM Centre has been recognised at the Learning Environment SA and NT Awards.

The STEM Centre has been commended for its innovation on a national scale, as the top New Individual Facility (Under $8 million Category), beating five other new constructions.

The centre is equipped with modern technology, including robotics and laser printers.

The new $1 million visual arts pods, offer a central area with tiered seating allowing for casual and formal learning opportunities, with potential interaction between the two learning streams.

Thomson Rossi were the architects commissioned to build the centre which was praised for its resourcefulness and improvisation, in a rural school setting.

Port Augusta's STEM centre officially opened earlier this year.
