Victory!

Small beans, but our STEM czar ( @RedmoorSTEM ) has been running a wind power engineering challenge all week, and WE WON!

My intrepid team of 4 Y7s plus myself built the most successful wind powered crane – wish I’d taken photos now (actually, they did, as it turns out) – lifting a whopping 38ml of water!

I’m going to stick with the day job for now, I reckon 🙂

Inspiration from within

So we have an incredibly dedicated Science teacher here in school. So much so that her efforts in the STEM area have just borne the most incredible fruit:

  • The Broadcom Masters Place
  • NSEC Junior Science and Maths Runner Up
  • NSEC Intermediate Science and Maths Runner Up (former pupil)
  • and recognition for the club itself

  • Young Engineers award for the “diversity of projects”

Massive congratulations to staff and pupils alike for all their hard work.

But now, us other STEM-related teachers are wondering what we should be doing, too? Me, I think I’m going to be trying out some programming-related activities on the Raspberry Pi, but I know the Maths department are also looking to get some projects going.

Time to share the spotlight around a bit, maybe?
