STEM School of the Month - Oct '18

Congratulations to All Saints Secondary who are STEM School of the Month for October!

All Saints Secondary have been hard at work this month providing STEM activities not just in the classroom and after school clubs but also through supporting the wider cluster.

Before the October holiday All Saints Secondary arranged for a number of S2 pupils to take part in the Faraday Challenge. The challenge saw teams of pupils compete against one another to see who could design, create and promote the best solution to a real-life engineering problem.

The school also have a number of S3 STEM Captains who run lunchtime clubs for S1 and S2 pupils throughout the week. This month saw an exciting session where the captains created methane bubbles on the palms of the S1 science club. Hot stuff!

The All Saints Secondary's S6 Young STEM Ambassadors have also been hard at work this month visiting some of their cluster primary and early years establishments. They ran a human health workshop with St Monica's Primary P7 class in which they showed pupils how to measure blood pressure, peak flow and pulse rate. The Young STEM Ambassadors also spent an afternoon at Forward Steps Nursery working with younger children to explore the different properties of materials.

 

Well done!
