We had our annual STEM day on March 17th this year. Students from all year groups had the opportunity to take part in a range of workshops ranging in hands on construction to looking at demonstrations that made them go wow!
British Science Week (BSW) is a national ten-day celebration of science, technology, engineering and maths – featuring fascinating, entertaining and engaging events and activities across the UK for people of all ages.
The resulting programme of events is a hugely varied and eclectic mix.
What happens in British Science Week?
BSW provides a platform to stimulate students and raise the profile of the STEM subjects too. BSW 2017 saw 20 workshops on offer from a range of external partners. Thank you to all of them for coming in to make the day such as success.To give you a flavour of the creativity, inspiration and fun that British Science Week brought to our school take a look at our photo gallery by clicking ‘continue reading’.
