Twenty Year 8 pupils had the opportunity to take part in a Science, Technology, Engineering & Maths (STEM) workshop delivered by STEM First.

The session involved pupils using a range of different skills and working in teams to build the best bridge, using minimal materials. 

STEM First provide inspirational opportunities and forge a link between schools and employers in order to inspire, excite and grow the STEM knowledge and understanding of young people.

The group was also joined by four STEM Ambassadors, volunteers who have a passion for STEM.  These highly motivated people work with schools and young people to inspire about STEM careers and opportunities.

Mrs Burn, Science Teacher, said, “The activity was enjoyed by all involved and the pupils put in a great effort which allowed all of them to successfully complete the challenge”.Year 8 Pupils Bridging The Gap in STEM
