Stem Session

A number of Year 8 pupils were given the incredible opportunity to take part in a virtual STEM session on Monday 20th March 2023. The pupils who have shown an interest in the possibility of pursuing a STEM career in the future, took part in an engineering activity where they were guided by STEM experts to create a Rubber Band Car. The session delivered by The Smallpiece Trust, was mapped to the curricula of England and Wales, to ensure a valuable, educational opportunity for all students who took part. Pupils were keen to create their car from a range of recycled materials and test to see if it worked. The opportunity enabled our pupils to develop their STEM skills through using their knowledge and creative abilities to achieve the final goal. Lots of excellent cars were created.
