Williamwood High School STEAM Fair 2019

All pupils in S1/S2 and in P6/P7 at our associated primary schools have now received a letter inviting them to the Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Design and Maths (STEAM) fair.  This will be held on Thursday 24th October 6pm – 8:30pm.  This event has been highly successful over the last few years engaging both pupils and parents in a variety of activities.  We are delighted to welcome back the Glasgow Science Centre with their entertaining and informative show, Future Fuels Show, as well as welcoming new partners who will be attending for the first time.  We are looking forward to an exciting and informative evening for both pupils and parents.
