Life at KES
Primary Schools STEM WorkshopsPosted on: 11/03/2019
KES recently held STEM, 'Mission to Mars' workshops for local primary school students which introduced STEM concepts in a fun but informative way.
STEM education embraces teaching skills and subjects in a way that mirrors real life, the way we work and solve problems. A job rarely requires only one skill set, STEM learning teaches students how subjects integrate and work together.
Our own students were involved in assisting staff and Governor, Ken Wickham along with Sixth Form student Callum, who brought along his solar powered cycle, an entry into the 'Big Bang' STEM competition at the NEC on 13 March.
The primary school students took part in experiments and prepared group presentations, with teams winning prizes for collaboration, creativity, critical thinking and communication. All the students put in a great deal of enthusiastic effort and gave us some great feedback on their day at KES.
