Last week we held our annual STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) week which was awesome.
Every Learning Zone took part in some amazing ‘hands on’ science experiments and our visiting scientist and engineers really brought their topics alive for the children.
The sessions were really inspiring and helped to raise the profile of STEM subjects in school and STEM careers for the children to aim for.
This fantastic week was topped off with a visit from Zoo Lab (who we welcome back every year). These science sessions had an age appropriate focus ranging from mini-beasts to habitats to endangered species.
See our Have You Heard? section for the amazing feedback we have received from our visitors about our children’s behaviour and attitude to learning.
Our children said:
“I really enjoyed charging the car with solar power and measuring the voltage to ensure it could complete its journey.”
“Working on the Mars Rover project was excellent.”
“I loved using magnets to move the iron filings around.”
