Last term the Science Faculty started a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics) club for KS3 students after school on Tuesdays and we have offered a range of activities that students wouldn’t normally have the opportunity to experience in their regular science lessons.
Since November studenls have built water clocks, sail boats and electric motors, created polymers and bouncy custard balls, tested Martian soil for signs of life, and designed sculptures to be sent into space as part of the SµGRE-1 experiment.
In the coming weeks attending students will have opportunities to test the effectiveness of hydrogels in nappies, investigate drugs cheats and discover the properties of 'smart' materials.
If you would like to join in, we meet on Tuesdays at 15:30 in CM12.
