A welcome note from our STEM Ambassadors of 2017.
Hi my name is Ahsen. I wanted to be in the STEM team because I wanted to be able to help people make things. I like engineering and building things and making science experiments.
Hi I’m Erin and I wanted to join the STEM team this year to have the opportunity to work with other staff. I’d like to help teachers in their class Science lessons.
Hi my name is Jack and I wanted to be in the stem committee because I love science and some people thought I would make a great stem leader. This year I thought of 2 ideas already.
Hi my name is Jennifer and I am a STEM Ambassador. I wanted to become part of the STEM committee because I would like to get children interested in science and host exciting activities with younger pupils to get them interested in STEM at an early age. If you have a suggestion and would like to tell me about it then I am in primary 7b.
Hi my name is Max and I wanted to be a STEM leader because I’ve always loved Science and I want to make the lessons more interactive and fun for the kids here at Busby Primary
Hi my name is Noor and I wanted to be in the STEM committee because I wanted to make Science more fun in Busby and find more opportunity for the kids in Busby.
Hi my name is Taymoor and I wanted be a STEM leader because I like Science and I want to start experiment clubs.
Hi I’m Vincent, technology is my favourite subject in school. I would like to help make more technology in Busby.
An asteroid called 2014 JO25 is due to fly past the Earth today.

Here is a copy of the topical science newsletter for the month of March.
1703 Topical Science Update March
7 New Earth sized planets have been discovered orbiting a star in the Trappist 1 System. Only 3 of the planets have been marked with a “Habitable Sticker”. But Scientists think all 7 could hold life depending on their individual properties. We all have different opinions on the chances that these planets hold life. So here’s what we think.
Matthew L – I do not think there will be life on these planets, but it is possible.
Mark T – I think there will be life because one of the planets are about the same distance from the sun and they have similar appearences to Earth.
Sam S – I think that none of them will hold life. Earth is too unique.
This is a video you can watch about the new planets:
Well done to January’s Scientists of the month winners.
The winners are:
P1a – Lewis
P1b – Emilio
P2 – Harris
P2/3 – Megan

This is a new award that the STEM Council are giving out, it is a Scientist of the Month award. Each month 1 person from each class will get nominated for exellence in Science.
P1 – Witold
”In our planet topic I wrote a book about all of the planets in our Solar System”
P2/3 – Tom
”We have been learning about the Sun, Moon and Earth. I know that it takes 24hrs for the Earth to rotate 360degrees”
Well done to everyone!!!
