STEM School of the Month - Dec ‘17
Congratulations to St Thomas Aquinas Secondary who have been named our STEM School of the month!
St Thomas Aquinas have been sharing lots of their STEM work on Twitter showcasing both classroom activities and after school clubs.
There has been some shocking work from the S1 Science club where pupils have been looking at static electricity. The S2 STEM Club have been investigating energy by looking at wind turbines and neurology using finger mazes. The school have also taken advantage of science and the outdoors by taking their S3 class on a visit to Victoria Park to work with the Park Rangers and learn about preserving bee habitats. Senior pupils from the Higher Biology class also made the trip to Strathclyde University to visit the Biolab and carry out experiments relating to DNA in order to learn about chain reactions.
Lastly the Higher Chemistry class got into the festive spirit by creating their own Chemistree which you can see in the image above!
Well done to everyone involved.
