LEGO Robotics – Scottish Final

The department would like to wish the WWHS Lego Robotics team good luck as they compete in the upcoming Scottish finals after earning their place in the regional finals.

The entire team has worked extremely hard to prepare for the final commencing at 8.30am in Perth on Saturday the 29th of February led by Mubbasher and Miss Fox.

We will post updates very soon….

Design and Technology STEM Day

The recent STEM day attended by 50 second year pupils took place on Friday the 13th of December and was organised by K. Gallagher the Principal Teacher of 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 (DHT for S2).

The department would also like to thank Ken and Janice Maxted for the delivery of the event on the day.

Pupil achievement

Congratulations to the Lego Robotics team who competed in the First Lego League Glasgow regional tournament in West College Scotland, Clydebank. Both teams performed extremely well throughout the day with the teams winning the robot challenge and robot design elements. Following their success, the teams will now progress to compete in the Scottish final next year. Well done to Mahad, Roddy, Rahul, Ross, Cosmas, Jiabao, Lee, Matthew, Manthan, James, Bhavya, Akhilesh, Charlie, Callum, Omar and Ibrahium.

SMARTSTEMS

17 of our S1 and S2 girls attended the SMARTSTEMS active conference at UWS Paisley with Mr Doohan. They took part in a range of science, technology, maths and engineering activities during the day. The girl’s also enjoyed inspiring talks from other females who have been successful in STEM careers.

Cluster STEM Project – Update

Just to update you at the midway point of the primary cluster project that everything is going very well, and pupils are enjoying the experience.

Pupils enjoyed a CAD modelling event on the 27th of March which featured the use industry standard software and use of the laser cutter here at Williamwood. Finally a number of pupils will visit Williamwood during the month of May to experience a practical manufacture task on the 29th.

Cluster STEM Project

Mr Doohan and Miss Gallagher of the Design and Technology department at Williamwood High are once again enjoying the experience of working with the cluster primary schools. The projects this year will allow us the opportunity to share design and production expertise which will result in the pinnacle of product engineering tasks. Pupils will gain an experience of laser cutting, 3D printing, design and manual manufacturing skills. We look forward to working with Netherlee, Carolside and Busby this year.

Design and Technology – STEM Day: 14/12/18

The recent STEM day attended by 50 second year pupils took place on Friday the 14th of December and was organised by K. Gallagher the Principal Teacher of Design and Technology. The theme of the STEM day was a design and engineering task based on the bright ideas, sustainable energy challenge sponsored by Shell Petroleum.

 

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 were involved in a smart building project with a focus on two areas of engineering. Students worked in teams of five to design and build a system which will help the world produce and consume more energy while emitting much less carbon dioxide.

 

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 Amy, Hannah,  Yunus and Ewan who are pictured with Mr Fisher (DHT for S2).

 

Busby Primary – Dragons Den Project.

K Gallagher was delighted to have been asked to be a judge at a Dragons Den event featuring the entrepreneurs of the future. The event was well executed and featured some wonderful pupil projects.
