Boost your skills with STEM

 

Why is STEM important?
Nowadays, most careers require good knowledge in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Even those jobs you least expect. For example, psychologists need to learn data analysis in order to figure out what people are usually troubled with. Our communities need a well-trained workforce to fill job vacancies, boost the economy, and build the future. This is why STEM is vital, it’s about being ready for university, job opportunities, and life.

What is coming up?

I am delighted to announce that we have lined up an exciting selection of STEM clubs that you can join in, the following is just a flavour of what is coming up this term:

VEX Robotics Competition, see how to compete on a world stage where teams of students are tasked with designing and building a robot in a game-based engineering challenge.

Mission to Mars program, explore Mars and learn about a continuous flow of scientific information and discovery through a carefully selected series of robotic orbiters, landers and mobile laboratories interconnected by a high-bandwidth Mars/Earth communications network.

National Space Centre, with six interactive galleries, the UK’s largest planetarium, and the iconic 42m high Rocket Tower, the award-winning National Space Centre is an out of this world experience

Coding club, learn how to code objects and execute commands. Join the largest online community where you can create your own interactive stories, games, and animations.

Science Club, this includes biology, chemistry and physics Olympiad. The club offers more than facts about science, but gives the opportunity to develop a deeper understanding of the world and to create lasting bonds.

Maths games clubs, this includes: maths games, puzzles, quizzes, codebreaking, maths investigations, maths trails and general problem solving.

Students helpers are also welcome to join, please see Mr Abusef if you would like to help running a club or if you have an idea you would like to introduce.
