Cheselbourne village school celebrates STEM week

Date:

Cheselbourne’s village school motto of ‘inspiring a lifetime love of learning’ had true meaning this month, when a STEM-themed week of activities created a wide range of experiences ranging from a Science Dome to a Robotics workshop, and many visits and webinars from ‘proper’ scientists.

The passion of all of the staff members and helpers was truly showcased, and the children were engaged in so many ways. These opportunities support the children not only to develop their knowledge, but also skills that will be transferred across the curriculum into many other subjects. During one task, the children had to design a contraption that could hold an egg. The contraption was dropped from over 7 feet in height and the aim was to see if the egg would stay intact … Great fun!
