Year 9 STEM Day 26th June
We were very excited to be able to host a Smallpeice STEM day which was a first for us at St Hilda’s. The whole day was designed to excite and enlighten students about how STEM is so important in today’s society. Our students were asked to design and build a rainwater collection system that could be implemented into ‘Smart buildings’. These tasks also allowed students to develop important key skills of team work, communication, time management and creativity.
We are so thrilled that each pupil who completed the STEM day also receives a CREST Discovery award, which carries UCAS endorsements and can contribute towards the skills section of the D of E award.
Our year 9 pupils were very enthused about the day and it was great to see our future scientists working effectively in teams to build something so sustainable and useful. Students are becoming more conscious about the impact of science on the environment so we believe it is so important to show how science can benefit society in an increasingly technological world.
Interested in engineering? Well, if you were an engineer, what would you do?
Team Science would like to invite our budding engineers to enter this interesting free competition from Leaders Award. It’s quite straight forward and something you can engage with whilst working at home. All you need is some paper, an imagination and time to watch a podcast or 2. For more information, see the introduction from the Leaders Award Team below.
There is nothing like a little boredom to fuel creative invention!
With that in mind, we would like to present our ‘If you were an engineer, what would you do’ Home Learning Project. Completely free for all children and young people aged 3-19.
We are providing more online interviews with engineers, who will share their work experiences and answer your questions; along with some activities to help get you ‘thinking like an engineer’.
So, how do you get involved?
Firstly, you will need to register, this can be done by clicking here.
Once registered, you will be given access to our online resources, guides and information on the upcoming engineer interviews via our resources area.
The deadline for this project is 10th September 2020.
