The Final STEAM Event of the Year
Monday 3rd July saw parents and pupils from Year 7 get together for the final STEAM event of the year. STEAM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Maths.
The challenge took the teams outdoors and tasked them with building bottle rockets. Armed with a foot pump, a range of different sized bottles, a rocket kit and a water tap the team’s first task was to get the rocket as high as possible. The teams had to work out which size and shape bottle was the best for this task and how much water to use. This led to a few rockets going missing in action somewhere over the dance studio.
The teams were then provided with some more materials and had the challenge of hitting a target. There were a few close shaves but no one managed to hit the target but with the sun shining and everyone having fun it didn’t really matter.
We would like to thank everyone who has taken part this year in the STEAM events, without your support they wouldn’t happen at all.
We’re already planning our STEAM events for next year, we hope to see you there!
