STEM Ambassadors

6th October 2017

The STEM Ambassador Programme enables anyone with science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) skills to inspire young people and demonstrate the possibilities of STEM subjects and careers

KS2 STEM afternoon

Key Stage Two had a visitor from the Institute of Engineering Technology on Wednesday. Andy Millar spoke to each class about engineering projects he had been involved in and explained how he had adapted musical instruments to enable disabled people to play them. The children also learnt about how he had been part of the team who created the channel tunnel. "That was mind-blowing!" reported Oscar, Year Four. Andy linked his skills back to when he was a child and enjoyed playing with Lego and Knex which has really inspired some children to think about a career in engineering. We are looking forward to having more visitors linked to Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths. Who knows what our children will invent in the future!

Andy sent very positive feedback regarding his visit:

"Thanks ever so much - what a lovely school! I remembered when I went in that I had done an engineering event of some type there before, but probably about ten years ago now. Thanks to all the staff and children, they were really fun to work with."
