On Tuesday 25th March, a group of 12 children and 2 members of staff had the opportunity to visit the RAF Museum in Cosford to take part in a STEM day (Science, Technology, engineering and Maths).
We participated in 4 different activities geared towards STEM. Firstly, we got to make and then fire our own rockets. We had a competition against the other schools and one of our pairs came a fantastic 2nd place! Next we moved onto 'Materials', where we did 3 different experiments, including generating power through potatoes and using UV pens!
After that, we headed for 'Cargo Drop'. A great activity that involved us working in groups to make a parachute that would safely deliver 3 rich tea fingers when dropped from a height! Finally, after lunch we moved on to 'Robots'. Here, we got to control robots and make them move around a maze and complete challenges through laptops and ipads.
We had a fantastic day and learnt so much, we even got chance to have a quick look around Hangar 1 (where we were based), to see all the fascinating planes, helicopters and rockets from years gone by. We were even given a medal for taking part in the day!
Take a look at some of the things that we did!
