Innellan Primary School STEM Week.

Last week the pupils at Innellan Primary School were busy doing lots of Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths activities for our STEM week. Our twenty pupils from P1 – P7 were all involved in lots of hands-on activities. We learnt all about magnets and electromagnets and conducted our own experiments. Pupils also participated in making circuits, and the P3-7 class lead the P1-2’s in a lesson on making lemon cell battery circuits to light up an LED light and a digital clock.

Some of our favourite experiments involved learning about forces. The P1-2 class learnt about friction and the P3-7 class made catapults and rockets. One of everybody’s favourite activities was a bottle rocket that flew taller than our school building! Other activities throughout the week involved experiments with light and sound and a boat challenge as our finale to a week full of in depth, hands-on STEM learning.
