STEM Challenge day

[30 Apr 2014]

The Science department took 9 year nine students to The University of Hull to take part in a number of STEM based challenges. These varied from producing a criminal e-fit to building robots and bridges.

The day was a huge success, with our students performing extremely well in all of the challenges. It was particularly pleasing to see them working so well in mixed school groups, interacting with other students from Kelvin Hall, St Mary’s, Wolfreton and Howden.

I am pleased to announce that Jack Williamson, Abbie Shearsmith and Carla Manuel were runners up in the robot building challenge and were only marginally beaten by a lucky Wolfreton team.

Staff also felt that we were unlucky to miss out on a victory in the e-fit challenge, as the resemblance to the ‘suspect’ was uncanny!

Please congratulate the following students on their work rate, skill and attitude, as well as being excellent ambassadors for the STEM subjects at Sirius Academy.
