STEM Event April 2016

On Wednesday 20th April  we held a very successful STEM day for 53 of our year 9 students working on a smart building project to create a device to recycle rainwater. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Keeping the STEM theme, selected students then attended a family event on the evening of Tuesday 26th April (see attached pictures).  This time the teams had to decode a message and then use this information to remotely defuse a “bomb”.  To do so they had to build a contraption which was able to remove the correct wire only from the “bomb” from outside the cordoned off area.

Did the parents have as much fun as the students?  Possibly!  They certainly came with a competitive spirit!

The event was very kindly organised by the Smallpeice Trust, one of several partner organisations that the College is actively working with to promote STEM activities and opportunities for our students.  Our congratulations go to Laura Collins and Joshua Seekins who were selected to

attend a 4-day residential course at Portsmouth University this summer to study Marine Technology, courtesy of sponsorship by ARM.  If you see them wish them well with this fantastic opportunity.
