An online summer course will offer pupils the chance to create a pandemic-themed film.

The virtual Steam – science, technology, engineering, arts and maths – Academy, run through the education department’s gifted and talented education programme, will feature remote learning classes from July 5 to July 28 for children aged 9 to15.

Pupils on the course will work together to write a script, compose music and create animations for a film on their experiences over the pandemic.

The course will operate in partnership with Ah! Tempo, a choir and performing arts programme led by Malinda Jennings, and technology education organisation Digibotics.

The course will cost $65 a week, with classes held online between 10am and 2.15pm.

Applications will be accepted on a first come, first served basis.
