David Chu is a Mathematics and Technologies teacher at Emmaus Christian College, SA. He is passionate about encouraging and inspiring students to take on a mindset where they are co-creators of technology, not mere consumers of it.
Over the past 2 years, David has devoted significant time to develop student focused, cross-curricular Makerspace capabilities at Emmaus Christian College; A place where students can come together to use and learn to use materials as well as develop creative projects.
David plans to use his scholarship winnings to expand the Makerspace to be applied in a senior school context, focusing on technology involving collaboration among various Science, Technologies, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics subjects to guide students in the development of internet of things (IoT) technologies and advanced communication technology.
