Girls in STEM

Y5 and Y6 girls enjoyed a fantastic STEM day at Hinde House Secondary School this week.

The workshop was designed to build their creative confidence and get them engaged with science, technology, engineering, art and maths (STEM). The event encouraged them to explore their creative and problem solving skills by working in teams to build an aircraft out of different materials.

As well as the practical aspect, the pupils received a talk from Dr Alison Buxton, of Steam Works.  She spoke of the exciting aspects of such careers in a bid to encourage them to get involved in engineering in later life, and hopefully bridge the gap between the number of men and women in those roles.
