Teachers across our spectrum of STEM subjects hosted an incredible array of morning workshops on a recent onsite STEM field day.

In Biology, they extracted banana DNA. In Chemistry, they defied gravity by running across Newtonian fluids; before getting their hands dirty making slime. Physics saw students test their dexterity, making motors from scratch. Maths and Computer Science had students coding geometrical patterns and Micro:bit powered LED arrays and fly-wheels.

Miss Manisier adds: “In the afternoon, students put their time-management, problem-solving and teamwork skills to the test completing a ‘design and build’ STEM challenge which involved making a lamp that met the design brief in time-pressured conditions, using finite resources. The day was a huge success and the students’ massive smiles, shrieks of laughter and gasps of wonder throughout the day were testament to this!”

With thanks to all who made the day such a success.



"The amazing Mr Flanagan stole the show with his liquid nitrogen extravaganza, which quite literally had students on the edges of their seats."
