Science and Engineering

Each year we run a day of Science and Engineering workshops to coincide with British Science Week. The aims of this day are to:

  • Engage and enthuse students by offering a range of STEM workshops
  • Continue to raise the profile of science and technology in school
  • Expose students to a range of careers in STEM

Throughout the day all year groups follow a programme of science and engineering related workshops which are delivered by our own staff and a range of STEM ambassadors from Industry and Higher Education settings. Workshops delivered include:

  • Year 8 activities include workshops with Merck Sharpe and Dohme as well as other STEM Ambassadors from Newcastle University and local companies
  • Year 7 had the opportunity to work with Expochef and also make Monster Sun Catcher keyrings
  • Year 6 highlights included the much loved Creepy Crawley Roadshow, Technology Tom Exhibition and also chocolate welding!
