The Children’s Hospital at Westmead Redevelopment Team and the Hospital School recently launched a partnership to connect students with the Roberts Co project team working on the new Paediatric Services Building (PSB), through fun and engaging classroom activities.
Each month, Roberts Co sets a STEM-based classroom challenge, aligned to student learning outcomes thanks to the support of Hospital School educators.
During the visits, students have the chance to share some of their creative ideas for the new hospital, along with a Q&A session with Roberts Co team members covering information about the new build, types of jobs and machinery on site, safety measures and equipment.
Project Manager Melissa Jones said the program serves as a reminder of who Roberts Co are building for and the positive impact the PSB will have on the hospital community.
“We’re thankful to the team and teachers at Sydney Children’s Hospitals Network for supporting this program because spending time in the hospital reminds us why we are here and who we are building for.”
