Big Bang Stem Event and Stem Workshops

Mr Baker and Mr Williams took a  group of enthusiastic Year 9 and 10 Scientists went on an educational visit to The Big Bang STEM event at the Birmingham NEC. Pupils were able to get involved with interactive Science exhibitions from some of the country’s biggest companies including; Rolls Royce, RAF, Lego, Meccano, Specsavers and EDF, just to name a few!

Pupils watched a variety of stage shows and took part in numerous activities that centred around Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.

In April, pupils in year 9 were selected to take part in two STEM workshops centred around renewable energy. In the first half of the day pupils produced their own wind turbine from simple materials. They then had a competition to see which group could generate the highest voltage. The winning group managed to generate an impressive 7.6V! In the second half of the day pupils created their own solar powered cars and raced them against each other on a track made in lab. 3.
