Year 6 STEM Stars

Category : Events

On Friday 28th September,  Ysgol Clywedog hosted its first STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) day for the local primary schools.  200 year 6 students from Minera, Bwlchgywn, Victoria School, St Giles and Gwenfro joined staff and students at Clywedog and experienced a full day of hands on STEM activities.  Some students made bath bombs and designed the packaging while others looked at the microscopic world around them using the microscopes.  Students engaged in maths problems and designed the fastest boat.  ICT was used to create videos.  They were able to travel inside the virtual human body and out to visit Jupiter using the Google Goggles and Google Expeditions.  We were joined by Graham Perrin from the Institute of Physics who taught the pupils all about sound.  They also experienced designing electric cars and competing against each other.

The students enjoyed the day and picked up lots of ideas about how STEM is used in our daily lives and what careers are available.
