Year 8 STEM Day

We recently held a STEM day for Year 8 students. Read some of their comments about the day below…

**************************************************************************************

“We went around the school hall and experienced a range of wonderful workshops. I enjoyed every workshop there. Not one workshop outclassed another, so it was well laid out and explained. At every workshop I learnt something new so that was great, and every teacher at every station made sense and was good.”

**************************************************************************************

“We did fun activities linked to Maths. I enjoyed the algebraic card trick and the holographic pig the most.”

**************************************************************************************

“I enjoyed the astrophysics and the card tricks. I learnt that Maths is used in card tricks.”

**************************************************************************************

“I really liked that day. I learnt a lot about astrophysics, bubbles and other stuff. I thought it was very educational and a lot of fun. It was better than lessons. I thought the bubbles one was great fun when they made a big bubble around you and the gyroscope when you have a bike wheel and you spin it fast and it makes you spin on the chair. I’d like to have another day like that.”

“Yesterday we participated in workshops about science and maths. There were six stations that were about: jumbo jets and aerodynamics, illusions and card tricks involving maths, black holes and stars, occupational therapy, potential and kinetic energy and bubbles. I enjoyed the rollercoaster with the marble, the astrophysics and the card tricks the most.”

**************************************************************************************

“I enjoyed the activities like bubbles and balance boards. I learnt that you can use algebra to do magic tricks.”

**************************************************************************************

“I enjoyed the activities as they weren’t boring, even though they involved Maths!”

 “I learnt that Maths and Science can be fun!”
