Our first STEM Day!

Our first STEM Day!

A great day of Science

Yesterday, as part of British Science Week, the Upper School held their first STEM day. This year, to highlight the concerns around continuing plastic pollution in the oceans, the pupils took part in a variety of activities around plastics.

The day started with an excellent talk from Mr Flower, who works with a company called 'Bottle Up' producing reusable water bottle made from sugar cane. The pupils then worked in their Divisions to: come up with a product to reuse plastic bags, make some bioplastic out of milk or cornflour, and find out a bit more about the problems of plastic pollution. At the end of the day, the Divisions came back together to present their product ideas to each other. Well done to all of the pupils for taking part so enthusiastically, and for coming up with such creative product ideas. Some of our favourites were a skipping rope made of plaited plastic bags, a kite, a fashion range, and a waterproof (and surprisingly comfortable) pillow.

Congratulations to Graham who won some seed pencils for their idea and presentation.
