Year 8 Science Trip

On Thursday March 15th the Year 8s set out for the NEC in Birmingham to visit the Big Bang Fair. This is a huge STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) event which is visited by schools from across the country. We all watched an interesting STEM presentation on one of the big stages before the children separated into their groups to visit a large variety of shows and demonstrations. These included building robots, learning about the use of technology in the armed forces, ‘Dangerous Equations’ ‘Operating Theatre Live’ and learning about medical research.
This was an excellent day out and gave the Year 8s some extra insight into the vast number of career possibilities available in STEM.
