The recent STEM day attended by 50 second year pupils took place on Friday 13th December and was organised by Miss Gallagher, PT Design and Technology. The theme of the STEM day was a design and engineering task linked to the BP Ultimate Stem Challenge –https://bpes.bp.com/ultimate-stem-challenge
Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) days provide short introductory sessions for S2 students to enhance their understanding of, and aptitude for, problem solving, creativity, design, and engineering. Pupils worked in teams of five to design and manufacture a prototype based on the concept of wearable technology.
Well done to all of the pupils who participated in this year’s STEM day and to the overall winners of the D&T shield. Congratulations to Grace, Reuben, Angelica, Harriet and Olivia who are pictured with Mrs Raeburn (S2 DHT). The department would also like to thank Ken and Janice Maxted for the delivery of the event on the day.
