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.
