Stratospheric STEM

Last week, our Year 9 and 10 students were completing a Stratospheric STEM task from BAE Systems in their Science lessons which saw them competing in teams to bid for a fictional commercial contract, analysing data to plan how to use a new high altitude solar powered aircraft to monitor climate change. They all then had to present a pitch in front of their peers.

Congratulations to the top 3 teams, who received academic excellence reward points and chocolate boxes:

Travis, Luke and Zane (Year 9)

Talal, Aliyah, D’arcy, Fenani and Aiza (Year 9)

Imaan, Raessa, Madiha and Rachel (Year 10)

Do Try This at Home!

Finally, from all of the Science at Sharples team, we hope you have a great Easter break, and if you are looking for something engaging and educational ‘Do Try This at Home’ is a series of fun Science experiments with short demonstration videos and simple, step-by-step instructions that can be carried out using only household objects:
