This term we have focused on enriching the curriculum with a fun and educational STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) club. Students have made density rainbows using coloured sugar solutions and most recently engineered spaghetti marshmallow towers. In a race against the clock students worked as a team to build the highest tower possible out of dried spaghetti and marshmallows. The objective of this session was to explore structures and investigate what methods of building can make the tallest and strongest structure.
More fun will follow this summer as students are challenged to build a marble run out of cardboard. Using engineering students will make a cardboard marble run that keeps a marble running for 30 seconds. All of year 7 are welcome. C10 Wednesday lunch
