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.
