STEM deliver Science show for Glebe Primary School 05/05/2017


During National Science Week and after the success of a great Science show in December, STEM hosted 36, year 5 primary School pupils.

The week, which ran from 10th-19th March hosted a lab-based show for Glebe Primary School, that included interesting science investigations, helping students to bring science to life in a fun and passionate manner.

Our STEM Ambassadors, who were on board to help, did a fantastic job of guiding students through the experiments, some of which included creating a 'flubber' from talcum powder and baby lotion. The lab-based lesson also encouraged pupils to measure ingredients and follow safety procedures of a lab. Pupils also made DNA bracelets, learning sequences and units as an example of how DNA is built.

On the other hand, a few pupils warmed up to a computer generated virtual game of Minecraft, in which they built a house using imagination and virtual skills.
The wealth of activities and experiments on board were varied to enable young people to take inspiration and have fun with Science in a knowledgeable and fun way.
