Year 8 Pupils go STEM Crazy.
As part of National Science Week all of Year 8 at St Thomas More Catholic High School took part in a Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths related day on Tuesday. Lots of pupils went to Magna Science Museum in Yorkshire, others were engaged in Café design and sixty pupils took over the school hall to build wind turbines. The wind turbine activity was sponsored by the National Grid and presented by the Smallpeice Trust. Over the day some pupils really stood out as tomorrow's engineers and were awarded prizes kindly donated by Crewe's Maplin store. Lots of pupils commented on the day helping them with their team work, developing their creativity and learning about the different jobs engineers do. Pupils working on café design had to apply their number skills to choosing a plot from an Estate Agents website, applying for planning permission, designing their café and then coming up with healthy menus! pupils that visited Magna discovered how huge a steel making site is, explored the various interactive science activities and took part in a rocket building competition.
