Monday 16th January STEM Workshops
Students had an exhilarating morning of Science and Math activities on Monday the 16th of January.
STEM Ambassadors from Canterbury Christ Church University came to school all dressed up for the carousel of activities. Students attended 2 out of the 6 sessions of fun and enriching Maths or Science activity
Some of the carousels of activities included Treasure hunt game with coordinates themed around Pirates, Code breaking, game theory all related to Pirate story, star war themed activity, Dr Who themed activity and being an astronaut for NASA in the astronaut academy.
In the astronaut workshop, the "NASA team" carried out some simple chemistry to test "rocket fuels", some rounding number exercises to help design their rocket and building their own model lunar modules out of marshmallow and sticks of pasta.
In the legal superhuman activity, students carried out 10 different activities, mostly based on maths. Decoding messages, calculating the quickest route through a maze and identifying mystery objects from their smell or from the sound they make.
It was a fun morning filled with lots of activities which aroused the year 7’s interest and got all of them engaged.
