On Friday 10th June, our Lower School students took part in our STEAM Activity Day. STEAM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics.
The day included a number of exciting and interesting activities for the students to get involved in. For our students in Years 2 to 6, there was an engineering challenge for students to build a creation that would prevent an egg from breaking when dropped from a height to start the day. Then our students took part in a STEAM Carousel, where they got to sample different activities and experiments from all areas of STEAM. These activities were supported by some of our Upper School students, who were amazing. Then the students went to see a Science Fair, led by our Year 7 students as part of their final work for this year. Again, the students did a great job and were a credit to themselves and the school. At the end of the day, the students had a Science Roadshow, led by our Science Team and then they had certificates and prizegiving for the day.
For our students in Nursery, Reception and Year 1, they had a day of investigating dinosaurs, using clay to build their own versions of dinosaurs, experiencing planetariums, having their own Science carousel and so much more. Again, they all had a great time and the staff who were involved were excellent.
Our students came dressed as their favourite Scientist / STEAM person for the day and this was another excellent part of the day for the students. We saw so many amazing costumes and the pupils should be proud of their efforts there!
We look forward to STEAM Day 2023!
