We ran a successful STEM day for year 8, this was spread over 2 days to enable the whole year group to take part.
The challenge for the STEM day was the aircraft challenge and pupils learned about some aircraft engineering principles and were able to work collaboratively to produce a prototype of their own.
They learned to project manage, be financially aware, model make and design logos. They were able to work to a brief and client expectations. Pupils learned how to test and modify their prototypes.
We were most impressed with the presentations from each team and they proudly stood at the front talked about their achievements and about their aircraft.
