Year 5 STEM Haileybury visit

On Thursday 15th June, four intrepid Year 5 scientists and Mr Gillott set off to take part in the annual Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) challenge at Haileybury College in Hertfordshire. The theme for this year’s challenge was ‘Space Exploration’ and throughout the day our four scientists had to work hard and collaborate on a series of puzzles including making a Martian Water Filter, designing and creating a parachute to safely land probes from orbit, testing out the best type of rocket fuel and programming a lunar lander to follow a series of operations in order to rescue a stranded crew member.

Our team performed magnificently throughout the day and ‘landed’ back home at OBH buzzing with excitement and fully decked out in space blankets! Well done, to all those involved.
