Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) (2nd February 2017)

The school took part in a STEM challenge to design a containing capable of transporting produce up a mountain.  This was based upon the farmers of Nepal, who had designed a similar system to transport their crops.  The children worked in cross class groups and produced some fine work.

STEM Design Challenge (25th June 2016)

Mrs Robertson took a team of children to Ripley Junior School to take part in the STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) design a ship lift challenge.  This was organised by Roll-Royce and gave the children a wonderful opportunity to design and build a lift.  The children took on the rolls of designer, planner, buyer and chief engineer.  Many thanks to Claire from Rolls-Royce for organising the event and Mrs Robertson for taking them.  Also a big thanks for the help of parents, both on the day and for transportation.
