This year, our pupils had the opportunity to enter a S.T.E.M. Competition. The remit was to design an invention as a solution to any problem they identified in the world around them. Pupils had to produce detailed, labelled diagrams of their inventions and then compose persuasive letters to try to persuade the engineers to make their inventions.
As part of the competition, pupils had to compile questions about engineering and, subsequently, interview an Engineer. We were thankful to have the visit of Mr Stephen Kyle, an Engineer, PhD student and S.T.E.M. ambassador. He ignited further interest in engineering in the pupils through his enthusiastic, informative responses to their interview questions and his engaging coding activities.
